Ok, so for the past couple of months there has been a program that will just pop up and then close immedently. It dosent have a name on it when it pops up, I have also tryed to return it to a restore point but it is still there. Is there any way that I can just return my computer to exactly how it was when I got it without doing any major work on it. I am using windows xp and I have a inspiron 9200. Any advise would be very helpful.
Down load this program. It is a process explorer. When you launch it, it will allow you to see what this program is and where it comes from. If you right click on the process, you can actually kill the process. This is probaly spyware or Mal ware. You will benefit from also downloading Spybot search and destroy, and AD-aware.
You can find these programs on MajorGeeks.com or download.com. They are absolutely free.
