    Go and read this thread HERE. You will find details of where to get HJT and how to post a log file.

    HJT is a small programme that allows us to see what`s running on your system. This is very useful for spotting trojans/spyware etc. It also has the ability to stop certain processes from running and contains a host of useful tools.

    If you suspect a virus/spyware etc. Post a HJT log into this thread, I`ll take a look and advise.

    I have moved your thread to the correct forum.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hello.

    I think you should kill this:

    C:\WINDOWS\BCMSMMSG.exe

    but because im not completely sure, dont kill it unless Howard instructs you.

    cfd.exe is installed from your internet installation disk. It isn`t required for your internet to work and consumes unecessary system resources. Like I said it phones home frequently and may be classed as spyware.

    C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate\LuCallbackProxy.exe Part of your Symantec/Norton crapware.

    Svchost.exe is a completely legit file and shouldn`t be touched.

    I use norton and it's not crap. But I think Norton 2004 is crap cuz it never detected any viruses even if I was sure I had one.

    Rather than asking questions, follow the instructions above.

    The best advice I can give you, is to get the free AVG antivirus programme and either the free Zonealarm, or the free Kerio firewall programmes from HERE, HERE and HERE.

    Then, disconnect from the net and completely uninstall your Symantec/Norton crapware from add remove programmes in your control panel. You may need to uninstall in several pieces rebooting inbetween.

    Once you`ve got rid of that resource hogging, bug ridden crap, install whichever firewall you chose, followed by AVG.

    Reboot your computer the required number of times and run the AVG updates.

    You will probably notice a performance boost to your system.

    the actual question is... do you use this yourself?

    howard_hopkinso Newcomer, in training Posts: 25,948   +17

    I`ve been using AVG for a number of years and have had no problems whatsoever.

    The fact is, Symantec/Norton is a crap programme. It`s expensive, it doesn`t do a very good job of detecting and killing viruses, it`s a resource hog that slows down your system, and it`s rather buggy and can cause major system problems.

    Most of the regular guys around here, wouldn`t touch Symantec/Norton with a barge pole.

    Regards Howard :)
