    Ok well, for the past I'd say month or 2? I've had something wrong with my computer. I was going to do a complete system restore and have my mom re-install all of my drivers but she didn't have the time.

    Anyways first it started with my computer saying my memory was low (it was either my system memory or just virtual memory). At this time I had Norton's. I checked my computer and I has more than half of my computer as free memory. The message kept popping up and I basically just ignored it because I knew there was really no problem. Then If I had my computer on for about 30 minutes to an hour it just randomly shut all of my programs down... If I tried re-opening it would tell me "not enough memory to open this application". So I'd restart my computer and go another 30-1hr...

    Then I downloaded AVG, found a lot of stuff on my computer. I cleared a lot of it. Now I found a Trojan Horse ZOMG I KNOW (what an amazing coincidence to my username)... Anyways I have no idea to get it off now. AVG doesn't do much really right now.

    -------------------------------------------------
    So my 2 problems are that my computer randomly closes my programs and I have to restart ever 30 minutes through an hour. Could this be the Trojan horse?

    I have a Trojan Horse... How the f*** do I get it off...

    UGH, I NEED TO STOP WATCHING PORN

    If it says the trojan horses name, you can google it and you'll find a way to get rid of it, maybe manually through the registry. Or I have a program called Trojan Remover, I dont know how effective it will be for you.

    Also when your computer is talking about low memory it means RAM, from what you said you seem to be thinking space.

    May be time to get some more RAM or change how your Virtual memory is set.
