    Is cmd.exe under lsass.exe a Virus
    I've got a problem that my internet, now a days, is working very slow. I think I''ve got some viruses in my computer and for that I have installed MCAFEE antivirus and its completely up to date. But still the problem ain't solved.

    while looking into the Process Exdplorer, I saw that the cmd.exe process starts automatically as a sub process of lsass.exe and the after some time ftp.exe is initiated as a subprocess for cmd.exe. Does that mean that my computer has some virus or trojan. Also some of my folders take a bit long to open (approximately 4 -- 5 seconds) when I double click them.

    For your help, following is the list of processes running on my computer.

    Please help me.

    Hmm looks a little suspicious.

    Time for some serious maintanence:

    Have you made sure all your drivers and patches are up to date ?

    Worth trying are some other Anti-Spyware/Virus Application and some System Maintenance, (I'm going to assume that you are using XP even though you didn't mention it).

    Most of these steps will work with any Operating System:

    1. Remove Temp Files and other unneeded files from your system, either with the built-in Disc Clean Up or CCleaner.

    (Disc clean up; open my computer > right click your C: drive > properties > Disc clean up button on general tab. Let it run and select everything).

    2. To make sure everything is running fine, also run both Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware Apps (make sure that they are updated first) (AVG is good and free).

    (A couple of good removal tools are Spybot and Adaware)

    *Also helps if the scanning is done in Safe mode as well as normal mode.

    Also an online Virus and Spyware scanner is Trend Housecall

    The use of a number of different scanners is a must as they check for infections in different ways.

    You can Google those filenames, and you'll find many sites that will explain the various types of files loaded. However, I've been to sites that post questions like this and post those startup process files like you have here, and they are not that accurate.

    Have you defragged lately or installed a program? Lack of defragging or installing large programs could slow you up. For internet purposes, there are speed checks, (try googling that), this will let you know if your internet connection is as fast as it should be.

    If you had a Virus, McAfee would have found it.
