  1. Ok I've been having some trojan problems since about early may. Figured out what it was and downloaded AVG in June. But now AVG is telling me the trojans are gone but I still have netmon.exe showing on my tskmngr, and my drwtsn keeps freezing my entire desktop explorer and my internet most every time it starts up. I also have practically continous popups and my computer will constanly just restart itself. I was just hoping someone could tell me what to do and how to fix my computer.

    if it is this bad, my usual solution is a windows reinstall. I appreciate this is a pain but in my experience it is a better long-term solution.
    I see from the log that you may have the remains of norton running - you need to kill this as it can conflict with AVG.
    Netmon is a legit program.

    Thanks. I will see if there are any one else posts a possible solution, and if i comes down to it I may just follow your advice. In the end norton isnt running but the remains of it still exist becaus when I went to delete it the entire computer shut down on itself. Any further attempt to delete it has had the same result, however i know its not running because every time the computer is started the first thing I do is open Task manager and try to prevent any thing I have been told causes problems from starting up.

    Yes lionheart i have gone through the process of using msconfig and tried to shutdown what was possibly causing the problems- unfortunatly at the same time I ended up shutting off some things vital to properly running task manager as it no longer shows me the user name under processes.

    Momok yes I am interested in cleaning my computer- however if after a few tries it doesnt work I would probably transfer the data I want onto another computer on the network we have set up in our house (dont worry mine is the only computer experinceing all of this as it is heavily firewalled) and reformat it.
