The task monitor is showing 100% usage and a program called 'arsetup.exe' is reponsible for 98%. Anyone know what this is please. I've scanned for virii, spyware and used CW Shredder.
Also a dial connection keeps coming up.

All suggestions eagerly awaited.

It's a Trojan downloader. See the middle of click here= for detail. Advice listed is to use HijackThis to fix it. Available here click here

No experience myself but 20 seconds Googling found it.
