My cp usage will randomly spike to 15-20 per cent usage while idle, help me please thanks in advance
I have these two programs called Idle Buddy and SSO on my computer. I ran a scan with Malwarebytes and cleaned up 18 threats, two of which were Trojan.Roraccoon, and the rest were riskware or PUPs. After rescanning my computer with Malwarebytes, Emsisoft, Norton, and other scanners, only a few things popped up and I cleaned them up. After another rescan everything seemed clean... So I uninstalled the programs and thought I was safe. However, just today malwarebytes came up with two new threats, this time in the admin account in my computer, both riskware. This prompted me to rescan everything (scans came up clean). I then opened the program files and searched through to see if there were any files leftover from the virus. I got rid of several files associated with Idle Buddy and SSO, and I think they’re all gone now (but i’m not sure). Then, I checked the registry for anything weird. I saw three registry entries that had been created by SSO and Idle Buddy, but when I tried to delete them I was given an error that said that these keys could not be deleted. Is there any way I can get rid of these for good? I have a bad feeling that even though most of them were caught and quarantined/deleted, they may still be doing things behind the scenes (like what happened to my admin account)... Here are the registry keys that I’m trying to delete: HKLM\SOFTWARE\IdleBuddy HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\IdleBuddy HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\SSO
