Hi,

I have downloaded Malwarebytes and have not found any malware running on my new Windows 7 machine.

I have a process dwm running and I am wondering if it should be.  I cannot find where it should or shouldn't be - only comments towards Malwarebytes.

I am experiencing hangs in Excel when copying data and cannot seem to locate the problem and I am wondering if this is my problem.

Help.

Thanks

Deb
