I have a problem that is driving me crazy. Each time I shut down

my computer, it installs "important updates", so that when I want

it to reboot quickly, it takes forever installing and then

"configuring" during reboot. Sometimes the installations fail;

sometimes they are okay. But I think it's very strange that there

should be constant updates.

I tried System Restore and went back a couple of weeks---as far as

it would let me. No change.

I think there is some sort of malware or virus involved, but I

can't find it. I ran Adaware earlier today. It said it found some

Trojan in Windows 32 system and got rid of it. I wish I had been

paying close attention, because now I wish I had the exact NAME of

the trojan it found. I do remember that it was a HEURistic file.

Anyway, I have atieclxx.exe and csrss.exe running constantly. When

I bring them up on the task manager, it does not give them an

address at system 32. Yet when I search, I find only one instance

of each file and it is in system 32.
Does this mean they are the real things? I don't know.

I have since run Malwarebytes and Avast; full scans of each, which

have turned up nothing.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium; AMD Phenom II X4 925; 8 gig

RAM; 64 bit.

I did run Hijack this and had appended the log to this post, but after reading your instructions, I thought better of it.

I would really appreciate any help you might offer.
