"System" process

    Date: 03/14/09 (Computer Geeks)    Keywords: virus, spyware

    My workplace has recently had an outbreak of the conficker virus and i've been kinda paranoid about my computer at home. I noticed today a process called "System" with PID 4 that is running at 62,936 K and staying there that I hadn't noticed before. I don't know if I didn't notice it and I'm just being overly paranoid or if it wasn't there. It has no "User Name" associated with it and it only uses 152 K of virtual memory.

    I recently scanned with Malwarebytes Antimalware in both regular and safe modes as well as AVG in safe mode and Spyware Doctor in regular. They only came up with a few weird things that I wasn't familiar with but didn't seem all that bad.

    I am preparing to just switch over to Ubuntu but I have about 3 years with this computer and I am kinda attached to it.

    Using Windows XP Home SP3 by the way.
