First time ever posting, but frustration level has reached peak. Forgive me if my etiquette is a little off. I am having serious problems running various programs, and have been led to believe that the .exe files I listed in topic title may have something to do with it (svchost, spoolsv, csrss). They are constantly running processes and I cannot find a way to remove them.
I have used Ad-aware, CWS, HiJack This, and Spy-Bot as many ways as I could find in the forum postings, but with no success. Will someone help me please?? Just prior to this posting I made sure all of the above were updated, ran through their paces, and computer was rebooted.

Thanks in advance for your help.

We need a closer look at what's happening.

Run HijackThis and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!

I hope someone is able to help me. I read it is appropriate to BUMP a post if response time has been excessive, and it has been about three weeks since my first post. Now, in addition to the svchost, spoolsv, and csrss problems I was having, about:blank has hit me again. I will repost a new logfile if someone can take a look at it. Thanks tremendously for any help you can give. Computer seems to get slower by the day.

Sorry about the delay! It shouldn't be that long. If you have developed new problems, a fresh Hijack this log would be appropriate. If necessary, bump the post after 24 hours or so without a reply.
