Default A thunking question with a sigh... here we go again.

Hi all,

My computer's getting wishy washy again. I've many processes that I don't recognize, and I cannot download any programs off of the web. Once download completes, I get the box saying that windows doesn't recognize the file extension and would I like to search the web for a program to open the file with.
Also, I've noticed a couple of "thunk" db & logs. One is name a twain log. What is thunking? I ask this because I seem to be reading human dialouge within the log file.
Here is an exerpt of the text.
TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - CTwunk ::AppInitialize - Reset Log

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - CTwunk ::OpenServer - Starting Thunker

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - CTwunk ::CloseServer - Why Can't We Find The Thunker Window?

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - DSM --DsmEntryDiagExit (RC = 0, CC = 0)

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - CTWTRACE--FineScanManager(2) to NULL:

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - CTWTRACE--CONTROL, IDENTITY, GETFIRST

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - DSM --DsmEntryDiagExit (RC = 1, CC = 3)

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - CTWTRACE--FineScanManager(2) to NULL:

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - CTWTRACE--CONTROL, STATUS, GET

TWAIN_32.DLL - MESSAGE - DSM --DsmEntryDiagExit (RC = 0, CC = 0)

Talking Re: A thunking question with a sigh... here we go again.

I did google on "Twain log" this is one link:
http://www.arborimage.com/twain_32.htm
Seems to be related to scanner's several models!

Computer is wishy washy? maybe have downloaded some virus stuff?
Are you running any antivirus programs, scan for bugs.
? System restore? try restore to earlier state?
What other stuff do you not recognize?

If it's a zip file you can use
Winzip to extract it.
