I noticed my computer was amazingly slow, I use a Windows XP-and I've been taking very good care of it. I lent it to my friend for a while and I found that my firewall was down O_O. not good. I ran a virus sweep-nothing. I use McAffe. one or two spyware but nothing to be mentioned.

I looked on my task manager (ctrl alt dlt) and HOLY CRAAP. hehe. I had around 1,000 drwtsn.exe programs running under the category network service. There are still other programs running-my startup.

I also get a popup box when I'm in the desktop saying my virtual memory was low. well-with all these dr wtsn programs I guess that would be obvious.

help anyone? I can't use my comp at all-i have it disconnected from the internet incase it's some hacker or some crap. using my laptop right now.
thank you.

hello and welcome to geekstogo,

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
