    Okay, I'm saying that this is a possible hijack. If it isn't, then I'm really really sorry for posting about this in the wrong forum. =( I'm doing my best not to be a bugger, but this has me completely stumped.


    http://img57.photobucket.com/albums/v173/Lord_Ragnar/Random/WeirdTaskManager.jpg

    That's my taskmanager. At the time when I took the screenshot.. every thing was going slower than slow, but the CPU said it wa sonly going at 5% most of the time - 26% when I took the screenshot. That's gone now, but the task manager still looks bizarre! Restarting does nothing, either.

    Did it get hi-jacked or screwed with, or did I do this my self?


    Thanks in advance!!

    By the way, just in case it helps... a HijackThis log:

    By the way; BT.is is where I bought the computer from. DCSResearch? I have no idea.

    again, thanks! And a thousand apologies if I posted this in the wrong place. =)

    Hi Whispy_Thing,

    I don't see anything in your log that indicates any hijack.

    O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com
    was put there by TDS-3 showing you the way to their site.

    It could be that you need to repair IE, although I know from first hand experience that disabling the Kodak Software might help a bit.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    No problem. I was glad when my girlfriend got her own computer and I could remove that software from my (relatively) old and slow machine. :D

    Regards,

    Pieter
