I was having problems with my Laptop slowing right down and it getting very hot such that the fan is on constantly. I also noticed that even without iexplore,exe running I appeared to have several copies of the process, including iexplore32* on a 64 bit machine. I am running Trend Micro AV, and it appeared that one of the other processes chewing up CPU was their AMSP. Several scans and re-install of Trend made no difference, and my machine even shut down due to temperature when I had very little running. Did some searches and came across this forum which tended to suggest some virus or malware or something. I started to follow one of the threads performing the relevant steps, right through to ComboFix. This is currently still generating a log after re-boot (been set there for 15+ minutes now and I cant start task manager). At this point, reading more about ComboFix, I realise it is not for the amateur. So I guess I am after help. I have already run Malwarebytes, DDS, GMER, MBRcheck and now ComboFix. ComboFIx is the only thing that claimed to be doing anything, but I feel I may have gone too far.
