Hey there, I am Vicenç, a Spanish student in KTH Stockholm trying to finish my MSc degree. Recently, my laptop (Acer TravelMate P) has slowed down a lot. When investigating it, the performance of my CPU is questionable. When I launch internet browsers, the CPU usage spikes. In addition, my task administrator reveals processes I have no idea how they got there. After googling most of them, they are normal processes, it is just they take much RAM and CPU usage. More than one would normally expect. I noticed as well the creation of random folders with the name of '!EndpointProtectionFolderDo NotDiscard' in Files, Images, Videos and Music, when I never installed Sandblast software. The images are like this: I ran several antimalware programs in safe mode, but none of them detected any infection. The usage of memory is really strange and it is making me worried. I hope some of you can help, I would profoundly appreciate. As someone who relies heavily on his PC, 2 weeks without a laptop would be terrible. I remain at your disposal. Best, Vicenç
I believe my PC may be infected with some sort of malware. Malwarebytes refuses to open its window, yet it still runs in the taskbar like normal. I have the 2 logs created with FarBar Recovery Scan Tool. FRST.txt Addition.txt
Hi, it seems bitcoin has infected my svchost for awhile now, I have tried to remove it using malware anti - malware, but it never really did remove the problem. I have scanned this probably 20 or more times, and everytime it said "remove on reboot" or "quarantined and successfully removed". At first there was no harm keeping it, it didn't affect anything i do really. But then today, it seems to have sprung. Problem: On startup, everything seems to work fine, but as soon as svchost starts, it starts to lag like crazy; hovering over an icon, click on the start button, opening up anything, etc. At first i didn't know what it was, or why this is happening, but when i checked task manager, it seems like svchost.exe was running a big number. shown here: I knew it was the problem, because when i ended process of svchost, everything return to normal, my computer was running fast like it always does and everything seems to function fine, sounds, graphics, etc. So I ran a full scan and found 7 problems.
