I think has to do with unnecessary processes running (For example, I found a number of copies of svchost.exe running). I looked on this site to see what some of the processes actually were, and found that a number of them are put there by trogans.
I run the free versions of 'AVG anti-virus' and 'Ad-Aware' respectively, but they don't seem to be finding any viruses. I also installed 'TroganHunter', but that didn't find any trogans either. I really don't know what else to do to clean my computer up apart from refomatting it, which I want to avoid.
The spec of my laptop is:
ATi mobility radeon 9600 graphics card
80gb hard drive.
Can anyone help me out?
