Winrscmde eating computer memory


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Im running a 6 months old intel core i3, windows 7, x64 bit laptop, and I noticed just now that a process called winrscmde eating away up until 1,228,040 K of my memory. Is there any way to stop it completely? I had three blue screen in the last two hours and I think this has something to do with the winrscmde process.

One of the bluescreens happened right after I ran a Malwarebytes scan, and after restart, a pop-up said "there was a problem starting C:ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes'Anti_Malware\cleanup.dll The specified module could not be found".

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Next.......

Please remove any usb or external drives from the computer before you run this scan!

Please download and run RogueKiller to your desktop.

For Windows XP, double-click to start.

For Vista or Windows 7, do a right-click on the program, select Run as Administrator to start, & when prompted Allow to run.

Click Scan to scan the system.

When the scan completes > Close out the program > Don't Fix anything!

Don't run any other options, they're not all bad!!!!!!!

Post back the report which should be located on your desktop.

MrC-

Thanks for the response! I saved all three files (DDS, Attach and RKreport) to my desktop, and really sorry if this a dumb question, but how can I attach files in the reply box? I tried dragging the file to the reply box, pressing the paste button and My Media button but none seems to do anything..

The most important things to remember when running it is to disable all your malware programs and run Combofix from your desktop.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix

http://www.bleepingc...to-use-combofix

Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Information on disabling your malware programs can be found Here.

Make sure you run ComboFix from your desktop.

Give it at least 30-45 minutes to finish if needed.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

---------->NOTE<----------

If you get the message Illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion after you run ComboFix....please reboot the computer, this should resolve the problem. You may have to do this several times if needed.

MrC-

Attached is the requested log report. Right now the computer is running OK and I took a look at task manager the physical memory now is around 33% with 2 GB used. I wanted to make the physical memory down to 15-20% actually but afraid I will disable important processes/programs..

Also, there are trojans in the Malwarebytes quarantine tab, should I delete them all?

Thanks,

Didier

Either way is fine.

--------------------------------------

A little clean up to do....

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

cf2.jpg

Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

---------------------------------

Please download OTL from one of the links below: (you may already have OTL on the system)

http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe

http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.com

Save it to your desktop.

Run OTL and hit the CleanUp button. (This will cleanup the tools and logs used including itself)

Any other programs or logs you can manually delete.

IE: RogueKiller.exe, RKreport.txt, RK_Quarantine folder, etc....

-------------------------------

Any questions...please post back.
