Malware eating up CPU usage


Recommended Posts

About a week ago I obtained a malware that eats up quite a bit of my CPU usage. Startup takes 15-20 minutes sometimes, and whenever I open a program CPU usage is pumped to 50% for a few minutes until it subsides. Thankfully the malware only eats up one of my dual cores so my computer is still usable and the usage only goes to 50% rather than 100% (though one of the dual cores is at full usage when this happens). Here is my hijackthis log:

Hi there eason, and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Click OK.

If you haven't already, please get these programs, update and run a complete scan removing all items found.

Spybot Search & Destroy Be sure to use the immunize feature. But do not enable TeaTimer at this time.

Open SB S&D

Make sure you are in Advanced Mode. Click on the Mode link at the top of the program and then Advanced Mode.

You can enable Tea Timer again if you wish once all special fixes have been done.

Please run a quick scan of your main drive, usually C with MBAM making sure you check all items found for removal. Please post that log in your next reply.

Then go here and run a scan PandaActive Scan There is a full tutorial on how to to this at the top of this forum.

You will post three logs. 1. MBAM scan. 2. Panda Active Scan. 3. HiJack This scan. Please run and post the scans in this order. You will finish the MBAM first so go ahead and post that log, then move on to Panda and so forth.
