I recently bought a new computer with Vista (ugh, not liking it much so far!) as the op. system. Today, my computer has been acting up a bit - kind of sluggish, especially on the 'Net. Not sure if it's my mouse (wireless that came with the computer. Just changed the battery because it kept freezing up on me, but it's still acting a bit sluggish), or if I have a bug or what.
So, I'm on the 'Net and tried to open a PDF file. That froze and gave me an error message saying that the program was not responding. It closed Firefox. I re-opened Firefox to the same session and the same thing happened.
After re-opening Firefox, the computer started acting even more sluggish, so I opened Task Manager and checked the processes. There are several processes I am not familiar with:
WkUFind.exe *32 (which, recently, this comes up every time I start the computer)
I use Kaspersky as my antivirus program (not having much fun with that, either - don't understand it, and the help section is definately NOT helpful!) and keep it updated.
Do I need to worry about these processes? Should I do a Trend Micro scan? Suggestions???
I really liked my XP computer and the free AVG, but got hit by lightning during an online test (going back to college - the tests were timed, and I was only about five minutes into it when a storm came up and WHAM! Can you say, "VERY DISAPPOINTED"?! Fried my modem and hard drive.) and had to buy a new PC. So, still learning Vista and all its "things".
