I took your advice and did just that. I found a couple of my processes are viruses/trojans/spyware blah blah. I am trying to end these processes, but the task manager says that it cannot end these processes because they are critical system processes.
Is there any way around this? And how do i prevent these types of processes from running? I am using WebRoot Spysweeper, and Trend Micro PC Cillin Anti-virus. I figured that those two programs would protect me, but clearly that isn't the case.
