    I have a two-years-old 667 MHz Cyrix III PC running with 40 GH HD, 256 MB SD RAM

    running in WindowsXP and I've the following problems with it:

    1. When I run Winamp 2.9, CPU usage is always 100%.
    2. Simple games like Hangaroo has beome sticky.
    3. Video played in a very small window are now has been pixelized noticeably.
    4. What is the proper way to uninstall programs that do not have unwise.exe or

    whose name not appearing in Add/Remove Programs?
    5. All the items except the dog in the left pane of SEARCH has disappeared. I can't

    search anything!
    6. When I tried to install some programs, a pop-up instruction that says

    "C:pROGRA^1\Symantec\S32EVNT1.DLL. An installable Virtual Device Driver failed Dll

    initialization. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application" always appeared.
    7. There are quite a large number of items running in PROCESSES of Windows Task

    Manager that took a lot of memories, which I don't recognize.
    7. My system is infected with Trojan horse Dialer 11 AN. I'm using AG Snti-Virus Free

    Edition 7.0.298 with virus base 265.6.5 dated 26/12/2004. But the progam could not

    remove nor quarantined it.
    8. I've run WinXP Setup the other day but quit it later before completion and now

    there is always an option to choose WinXP Professional and the incompleted set up.
    9. My PC takes a lot of time to shutdown. I've tried some registry tweaks of some

    sites but it did not help. I even choose to clear page files. What is pagefiles!?
    10. I've used Kazaa Lite for P2P, but recenlty was always connecting but not

    connected. Because of this is I unistalled it and used LimeWire 4.2.6 instead but it

    took a lot of time to open. I've also downloaded Kazaa Media Desktop, Download

    Manager and Pal. Can these three be used for P2P without KazaaLite?

    the systray.exe seems like a virus. you should disable & delete it. the windows' systray will not be shown as a process and the location will be :\windows\system32\ .

    you may run the WinPatrol software to check for more information on the running application. if it is not from a respectable company or the company is unknown try disabling it. ( http://www.winpatrol.com )

    <--Install SP2 for XP


    That is a documented bug, Your problem can be solved by installing Service Pack 2 for WinXP ...

    First of all, Do this thing :
    Start > Run > Appwiz.cpl <Press Enter>
    Now uninstall 180 Search Assistant , GogoWare (or GogoTools) , MyBar , Norton Antivirus (If it is listed there, cauz most of the files of NAV have been deleted from your system).
    Now Reboot in Safe mode .. (Press F8 while booting your system and Select Safe Mode )

    See if these process are still running in Safe mode or not. If yes then first Kill these process from TaskManager ... Press Ctrl Shift Esc to open Task Manager and then Highlight these process in the Process Tab and Rightclick and Select Kill Process ..

    Now Run HijackThis again and put a CheckMark next to these entries and Click on Fix Checked.
    Please make sure that all Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer windows are closed.

    also plz install Adware and scan , fix the problems.

    spybot is not good at detecting 180 search assistant . and also install zonealarm firewall.
