Hi Archie,

wsup = Adware.Huntbar
wtoolsa = WinTools Spyware
explorer = Windows Explorer
navapw32 = Norton Antivirus
sync = ClockSync Spyware
monwow = Norton CleanSweep
msbb = Web3000 Spyware
csinsm32 = Norton CleanSweep
systray = Microsoft System Tray
nprotect = Norton Antivirus

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
