-I'm running F-Secure antivirus, which sometimes seems to run an exessive amount of Ram, but not all the time.
the fssm32.exe file in processes tab of the task manager was running a small 20,000K before, now its up around 180,000K as I'm typing this message.
-ASUS Live update creates a C++ runtime error because it asked runtime to close it in an unual manner. This happens everytime the laptop boots, somewhere within 5 to 10 minutes of starting the system. I had time to run hijack this before it closed, if that makes any difference.
Sorry about the broad description of that last one - If you need, I'll restart again and post the exact details of the error next time i boot up.
I've run Hijackthis as soon as I booted the laptop, with nothing else running, or before i ran anything else to try and give you all a clear look at whats running from startup onwards, and hopefully you can see if theres anything running that shouldnt be etc.
If theres anything I've left out, let me know.
Thankyou all in advance for all of your help
