  1. I am currently faced with an issue with my task manager where when I open it, it immediately closes after .5/1 second(s). I think I might've downloaded some file somewhere earlier but I already deleted my recent downloads. I tried /taskkill command using cmd since I found 2 console tasks that were suspicious but once I killed them, they just come back immediately. I will be highlighting the 2 tasks in the attached photos (mservicecpu.exe and xservicegpu.exe). Although I'm not really sure whether these 2 are the cause of my problem since no results come out when I try to search for them on Goog
  2. Hey, I'm having the same exact problem as the person who started this thread. I haven't been able to open my task manager and my CPU's fans have been running under severe load even though I only have a couple of chrome tabs open. I have downloaded an alternate task manager to figure out what's causing my CPU to run fast and it turns out I have the same perpetrator as the person with the original problem. I first stumbled upon this problem around 3 days ago, which makes me assume that this new virus is a threat that has started to spread out recently, but that's only based on my presumptions. A
  3. Hi, recently i noticed that my cpu usage went up to 90% above, but everytime i run the task manager, the CPU usage automatically go down to 30-40%+. But if i close the task manager, the whole pc is starting to experience lag. I tried using the malwarebytes to scan. But i still experiencing this issue. malware.txt adw.txt
  4. Hi. I've been noticing high CPU temperatures and fan speeds on my laptop (which I recently cleaned and reapplied thermal paste to). Every time I open the Task Manager, the CPU usage is on 50 - 90% for a moment but immediately drops down to 5 - 10%. I'm suspecting this is a bitcoin miner virus, mainly because the symptoms are identical to what was described in this thread. Should I follow the same steps given to the person in that post? Thanks in advance for any replies. (My system is an XPS 15 9560, Intel i7 7700HQ, Nvidia GTX 1050, 8Gb RAM, Windows 10 Version 2004)
  5. Hi, I'm not sure if this is correct place to post. I bought this laptop computer in 2016, but didn't start using it regularly until 2019/2020. In 2019 from about April until July, I used it for a part-time work-from-home survey job. Then, early this year I started using it exclusively when Windows 7 became obsolete. The laptop runs slow, and this isn't something that started after an update. It just seems to keep getting slower. Sometimes it seems particularly slow when using the internet or specific websites (like FaceBook, etc). Btw, I usually use MS Edge browser. Rarely do
  6. Hello, Recently my PC started acting weird and I was wondering what's the problem. I found out that when I turn on Task Manager processor usage drops instantly from 100% to normal rate. I had this problem many years ago on a different PC (it turned out to be a bitcoin miner) and Malwarebytes scan worked like a charm, but now it doesn't help. What should I do to make my PC working like it should? Sorry for my poor English, i'm not native. :) Thanks for any help, I appreciate it. :)
  7. Hello, I recently noticed that when I am running my PC and open task manager I see the CPU usable at 70-100% for a moment before it drops to about 10%. I've followed the advice on https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/241749-cpu-usage-high-until-i-open-task-manager/ (as best as I can) which hasn't been able to fix it. I've ran multiple scans of Malwarebytes and while its detected 1 or 2 things it hasn't made a difference. Thanks, Hawk Malwarebytesfile.txt
  8. Hello, I built a new pc a month ago and it's been doing great until a few days ago that I noticed my cpu at 50% plus when idle/browsing with no heavy programs running. Everytime I run the task manager or similar programs I downloaded online, the CPU usage will always go down to around 1-5%. I ran a total scan using avast and I dont see any malicious file. I can't see what process/program is the culprit because everytime I check it on the task manager, the usage will suddenly drop and I can no longer see which one is using all the cpu. I've seen similar posts online and here, and tried to
  9. I'm writing to you from my phone. I turned on my computer my sign on for Microsoft came up, I signed in and it took me to a blank screen. Control/Alt/Delete brought up task manager but that's all I have. I can't afford to take it in. I'm no guru. My computer is a HP EliteBook core i7 vPro Windows 10 Pro. I don't know what else to tell you
  10. Hi, Windows Powershell.exe appears on my W Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, it consumes from 75% until 100% of cpu and appears occasionally but in 1 day it appears 3 times. its annoying because i will always have to end this procees in the task manager everytime that it appears. (I ran avast antivirus because i have a license but it doesn't solve this).
  11. A little while ago tonight, my desktop slowed to crawl. Applications unresponsive, opening one taking two minutes,etc. when I finally got Task Manager open (W7 64bit), I saw this. I was not running a scan. It took the computer about 7 minutes just to reboot, then it was fine. What does this signify? Thanks.
  12. Hi I'm having some really strange issues with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware... I'm running W7 64: A few days ago I saw my MW wasn't on the system tray and I wasn't getting any warning for any prohibited websites, so I decided to do a clean re-install using mbam-clean- and activate the newly installed version using my key and, only one day later I'm right back where I started, which is: I can't see the icon in the system tray I can see that mbam.exe *32 AND MBAMService.exe are running in the Task Manager but... I don't get any warnings at all. When I ex
  13. Recently I had two problems occur 1)a window would open stating " the requested resource is in use" and 2) when attempting to open task manager the program would flash open for a second and then close and disappear. I researched the problem and not unexpectedly most solutions referenced Malwarebyte. Almost all solutions began by downloading and installing your products. The downloading posed no problem and all were successfully downloaded. Obviously the next step was installation and all failed; an error message stating "the requested resource is in use". Therefore I am looking to t
  14. My Malwarebytes detected and quarantined pum.disable.taskmgr. Unfortunately, although I have done everything to enable (yes, my default is back to '0'), it now tells me that it cannot find taskmgr.exe even though I can see it and click the icon in my program files. Is there any way to restore that? I also can't get permission to drag anything into the folder C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-advancedtaskmanager_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.0_none_dc5b465b0231f5ad where it says my taskmgr.exe lives.

  15. I scanned with Adware Cleaner and it detected these entries in my registry(or running somewhere) my PC is slow to boot to startup, programs are sluggish and after google searching I found nothing but forums indicating this is a good indication of malware. I ran Malwarebytes prior to my Adware scan but it found nothing, however my PC is running slow. and programs(including Mbam and MS Security Essentials) is slow to open and slow to load. often times MS Security Essentials doesn't turn on autoprotect at all.

  16. LG Optimus L90 Android Malwarebytes Mobile detects a program called: Task Manager, version 4.41.1, com.lge.lmk. App Info indicates: This may cost you money, reroute outgoing calls, etc. I cannot find adequate information about what this app is. Since and update installed that and Quick Translator, many app install dates appear as year 1970. Is my phone infected? Thanks.
  17. Hello, I know that many people are having problems after downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit on Windows 10 computers. You will try to run the program and it will give you an error message. If you're savvy enough to go into task manager, the process will be there but nothing will happen. This error could be due to a corrupt file when downloading the program, it could be due to an antivirus conflict, or it may have been due to encrypting the hard drive with bitlocker or truecrypt. Here is how to fix this: Go to your command prompt. (windows key, type 'cmd' , ctrl +shift

  19. Hello, I'm trying to speed up my old pc by closing as many programs as I can in task manager to maximize available cpu for a 3-D modeling progam that is a real hog. As it stands it barely works, I get frequent low memory warnings and it crashes frequently. Can anybody tell me which entries in Task Manager MUST be kept open to insure full functunality of Malwarebytes? I'm sorry, but I'm not very tech savvy and it's all gobbledygook to me. It would help if the names in the Task Manager list were the same as the names of the programs in question, but often they're not. I'm running Malwarebytes
  20. I have donne some digging and have found that this is either a trojan , something connected with avast, Win7 or an infected MW Pro. I don't use and have never installed Avast. My OS is Win XP Home 2003 SP/3. MW has not failed to scan, update or block a virus or malware so I don't think that's it. I did notice that when that popped up in task manager that MW PRO started again with "malicious website blocking diabled" again but once I do a manual update, it goes back to normal. So what is unsecapp.exe? I Have been having issues with videos playing on FB and Yahoo so I have set Flash to "ask to a
  21. Hello, firstly I'd like to say sorry in advance if I'm doing something wrong (as in posting this in the wrong category or computer related) To quickly explain why I know I have a virus basically I can't open task manager anymore, so I tried all these scripts for cmd and stuff like that of the internet to get it activated again and for most of them nothing happened, but for some I got that I needed to go on registry editing, I tried and I got "registry editing has been disabled by your administrator" similar to my original error when trying to open task manager. (I honestly don't know muc
  22. Hello - I've just signed up to get help with same problem that was in earlier post that's been resolved and locked: "csrss.exe winlogin.exe. No description no username, started by cactusjack73, Dec 15 2013". The symptoms are the same, both of these show under "processes" tab of task manager without username or description. Rightclick options of "Open file location" and "Properties" do not work. Attached is a screenshot of task manager and my system specs. Additionally, the internal hard drive is SAMSUNG SSD PM830 mSATA 128GB ATA Device, ACHI enabled and I have 2 Seagate Free Agent USB HDDs -
  23. Hello, I have been unable to stop the bleeding my pc has. Having a number of issues that are not detected by ANY tools and/or anti virus/malware programs. Today I got the Win32/bundle,toolbar while updating CCleaner and its now time to let somebody more educated in this area take the wheel. Here are the requested logs: DDS (Ver_2012-11-20.01) - NTFS_AMD64 Internet Explorer: Run by Timelord at 15:41:21 on 2014-02-26 Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7601.1.1252.1.1033.18.1900.770 [GMT -6:00] .

  24. in safe mode csrss.exe and winlogon look normal However when Win 7 64bit pc is booted into normal mode there is no description for either and no username. I can also not find the file location of either process. Have run malwarebytes in normal mode as well as Kapersky 6 and have not found a virus. Still suspicious though?
  25. Last week I ran Malwarebytes. It informed me that it found one item and that it needed to reboot to remove it. After rebooting my system loaded a mysterious task bar button. (I uploaded it as an attachment to this post) It looks like a square with text and a balloon with a question mark in front. I have looked in task manager and no program is listed as running. I have looked at the processes running, but it is hard to know what process it may be. Any help would be appreciated running windows xp thanks malwarebytes.bmp
