It seems that the malware problems are gone, thanks a ton for the help.
I suspect I might have one or more viruses. If I open my norton application the font size is very large and the screen size is very small and not resizeable or "maximizeable", this also goes for spyboot S&D. I tried to update the virus definition yesterday but it did not seem to do so. So I consider uninstalling it and install AVG instead.
Another issue is that my pc is having trouble with the shutdown process. My impression is that the longer I have it turned on the longer the shutdown/reboot process seem to take. It could often take from aprox 2 to 5 minuttes. From time to time I alos get a message telling me that the symantec process ccapp is not responding and will be automaicatly turned of, during shut down/reboot. My general impression is that the pc still have some problems related to it.
During this dialog with you I've considered scratching the laptop and reinstall everything. But as both you and me have used a great amount of time fixing the issues. This option somehow seems like a defeat to the virus/malware camp! Which I, not gladly or likely, is acceptable to commit
