Oh great wise ones with all the bits and bytes knowledge, I need help.
I went to sign off AOL (yeah, yeah don't give grief about that) earlier today and the AOL screen wouldn't go away. My connection was terminated, but the screen stayed up and my computer was locked up. I didn't realize this for a couple of hours because I was running out the door with the daughter. Upon returning home and realizing what happened I did what sounded good to me. I powered down my computer, waited a few and fired it up again. However none of my icons appeared on the desktop, only in the tray and everything was locked up. After doing the old Ctrl/Alt/Del thing, here's what programs were running:
Explorer (not responding)
Navapw32 (not responding)
So I restarted several times and the same thing kept happening. Every now and then it would say that my Norton Anti virus was "not responding". I finally did Ctrl/Alt/Del and did End Task on E_shoa2 thinking this might be some type of Trojan or something. I don't ever recall seeing this. I restarted and my Norton anti virus program opened up (which has expired and I do need to renew). Finally everything kicked in and voila..here I am.
My questionis what course of action should I take now?
Sorry for rambling on, but I know it is important to get all of the "what were you doing and what happened when" questions answered.
