  1. Hi All,

    I presume I have contracted something whilst using Vuze, but I don't know what or how to deal with it.
    My computer takes ages to do anything, there are 60-70 processes running at any one time, Internet Exploreris Not Responding, then it IS responding, then Not etc. CPU usage usually very high, often 100%.
    I am operating McAfee which finds nothing. Downloaded Ad-Aware and Spybot but both found nothing either. Hope someone can help.

    Yours hopefully

    If you suspect a virus then the correct forum is the Virus/malware forum where they can help you. Please run their 8 steps first and then post.
    I don't believe Adaware and Spybot are on that list.
    Was McAfee current with it's definitions?

    Sorry pjamme, I wasn't aware that there was a virus/malware forum. I'll post it there and hope to get a solution. Sorry and Thanks,
