I recently (by recently I mean two days ago) downloaded AVG and spybot, I scanned both and they didn't detect anything. I'll try Ad-Aware it that will help.

Oh my jesus, well it already found over 100 errors... since the trial can only fix 20, would the full version be worth it?

Final number is 220

It appears I didn't.

I downloaded an advertisement up above, I feel like an idiot.

Well that's probably one of the reasons you have so many processes!

Oh and do the Full Scan not the Smart or Custom Scan. You want your whole computer to be scanned.

Well, two infections detected 2 minutes into the scan, that could be the problem, haha.

So I'm guessing you're running Windows Vista then? You are running 70 processes it's just that it is one of the many parts of your system Vista took control away.
