  1. Hello everyone!

    Please help me out.

    My Cpu is stuck running at 100% at all times.

    I lose control of my mouse and other programs open and close randomly.

    Please help!

    Thanks

    I believe norton is the cause of your problems!! Download either the free AVG or Avast antivirus programmes and either the free Zonealarm or Kerio firewall programmes from within this link - http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    Then, disconnect from the net and completely uninstall Symantec/Norton. If you have any problems in uninstalling the programme, take a look at this thread - http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic57112.html

    Once you`ve completely uninstalled Symantec/Norton, reboot your system and install whichever firewall programme you chose, followed by whichever antivirus programme you chose. Reboot your system the required number of times and reconnect to the net. Run the antivirus updates.

    Once you have done that, post a new HJT log and we will deal with the remaining malware!!!!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

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


    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = :0

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    However, just to make sure, please go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
