My machine (XP SP3) seems to be running - IS running - very slowly.

I have a suspicion things are running in the background - I may even be part of a botnet. (I have seen incoming spam purporting to originate from me - which I KNOW I did not send (knowingly) ).

I have run Silent Runners, and got pages of information .....

However, a) I don't understand the half of it, and b) if it did show malware, I wouldn't know how to remove it.

Is there anyone to whom I could send an up-to-date SR listing, who could see if it listed anything of significance, and talk me through any remedial steps that might be indicated?

Thanks

Dave

Howdy:

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
