Problems :s

  1. I've recently just got onto broadband (got the modem, literally, this afternoon). Soon after connecting, my computer started freezing now and again. I've had to restart it a few times so far..

    Also (as of a few hours ago), every time I open my task manager, it closes suddenly and its icon remains in the system tray (until I scroll over it with my mouse).

    I read a few other threads on this forum and heard about HijackThis. I've downloaded it and whenever I open it, it closes straight away (like the task manager).

    I'm using Avast! at the moment (which, incidentally, keeps coming up with a virus every minute or so, and it keeps blocking something called 'DCOM Exploit' and 'LSASS Exploit (SXP)'). It also told me I had a trojan before (which I think I've got rid of..)

    As you can probably tell, I'm not very good with computers..
    Any help would be great

    Have you installed a firewall?
