That we can schedule programs to start with the 'scheduler'. We also have spyware that most of which we can find with EWIDO and HOUSECALL. Try scans and eject all you find. Be sure to look for any unknown BHO's which can be used to intrude from Outlook (all versions.)
Hi all. Over the last two months various Windows programs start unexpectedly if the PC is not in use. For example, after it's been left idle for about half an hour there will be a beep and the 'Search' window will pop open. Or the 'My Computer' folder will suddenly appear. Sometimes the 'Search' window opens with my IE homepage open in it (I don't use Internet Explorer, but Mozilla Firefox). What's going on? I have Windows Firewall on and Norton Anitvirus updated almost every day. Please help, it's completely freaking me out..!
Specs are: Win XP Home 2002 SP2; Dell Dimension 4400; CPU 1.70GHz; RAM 640MB.
