I've been having troubles today (and today only) with Windows Live Messenger and Windows Media Player. They were working fine yesterday and I don't remember downloading or visiting any sites that I could have picked up Malware or a Virus. I've tried uninstalled Live Messenger and reinstalling but to no avail... also tried an adaware scan which showed nothing and a Trend Micro online Virus scan that showed nothing.
I open up Windows Live Messenger or Windows Media Player (these are the only two that I have ran that seem to give me trouble) and my computer just freezes up. Takes 100% of my CPU to keep them going therefore I can't even refresh my desktop. Just wondering what could be the cause of it.
Any help would be appreciated.
