Hi, A few days ago I noticed cpu-usage levels were extremely high (100% most of the time). I closed all apps and restarted, computer starts out fine but as soon as I turn on wifi a Notepad launches by itself and computer starts getting really slow. Been noticing several cmd.exe processes open in task manager even tho I haven't launched command prompt. Same thing with conhost.exe msiexec.exe and notepad.exe and more than one explorer.exe Tried to run virus scan, nothing was found - althought Avast Antivirus keeps notifying me that it blocked a threat and that urls were being blocked such as: reannewscomm.com and other spammy-sounding websites. Please let me know if there is any other information you need from me at this point. P.S. I'm running Windows 7 with Avast Antivirus Any help is appreciated. Ahmed
