    We need to temporarily disable Spybot search & Destroy`s tea time, as it may interfere with any fix we are trying to run.

    Disable Spybot's TeaTimer. This is a two step process.
    First:
    - Right click Spybot in the System Tray (looks like a calendar with a padlock symbol)
    - Choose Exit Spybot S&D Resident
    Second:
    - Open Spybot S&D
    - Click Mode, check Advanced Mode
    - Go To Left Panel, Click Tools, then also in left panel, click Resident
    - If your firewall raises a question, say OK
    - Uncheck the box labeled Resident Tea-Timer and OK any prompts.
    - Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
    - Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system. re-enable SS&D Teatimer.

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    What processes are using your cpu and ram and by how much?

    Regards Howard :)

    I can`t see any unusual cpu usage in your pics. The 86% system idle process is perfectly normal and means that`s the amount of unused cpu cycles.

    Regards Howard :)
