infected or different issues (capfasem.exe + skype)?

Recommended Posts


Lately I've noticed severe sluggishness when running Skype. capfasem.exe uses up easily 50% or system resources as soon as I do anything involving internet traffic . It seems that when I close down skype everything is fine. I am using firefox mostly. Am I infected by something or do I have a different issue?

Thanks for your help, my hijackthis log is copied below.

There's nothing suspicious here. The capfasem.exe process is related with your CA Personal Firewall, so it monitors every traffic. Could be that it causes an extra slowdown when you run skype.

Maybe temporary disable your CA firewall when you use Skype and enable it again when done?

Thanks. Big relief! :D I'll try that.
