    updates java adobe

    You have a lot of running processes. Not being the expert as others that communicate on here I can only make that observation. One thing I could comment on is that your java and adobe could be updated. If I were you I would start another thread hopefully an expert can assist you with your hijackthis! logs.
    For the time being I would see about updating your java at this website http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

    To update your adobe programs (reader flash player) go to this website: http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/

    Thanks

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for your response.
    I'll give the updates a whirl and see what happens.
    As a newbie there is lots I don't know about this board but why did you suggest I start a new thread?

    Thanks,

    I ran both the Java and the Adobe updates but no improvement.
    Java said I already had the latest & greatest but I re-ran it anyway.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
