My Windows XP has been running slower than I usual for the past month or two. Last night, I ran Add/Remove function to delete or uninstall rarely used programs. I did some research and found two suspicious programs running:
I ran Hijack This and found nothing. Then, I updated Search and Destroy. When I restarted my computer to active the virus definitions for Search and Destroy, an error message displayed and did not continue to the log-in page. The error message read:
Window Title Bar: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Error Message: Buffer overflow detected.
A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the programs internal state and has been terminated.
OK is the only option and it shuts down my computer.
Please advise me on next steps.
Thanks sooooooo much in advance.
