    No, he did post it as a txt attachment.

    The problem was in regard to the sticky at the top of this (winOS) forum that says "do not post your HJT log in this forum" or words to that affect. :p

    Edit: my bad. The rule still applies - http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic36117.html - but has been "un-stickied" due to the number of sticky threads getting too much.

    spike: You know I've never seen that post/sticky from RBS in the header post of this forum before. But I have to admit I've never really dwelled on the HJT topic too much and have fundamentally missed the rule of ONLY posting them in the Security and Web forum. ME :unch:

    cookiedude: Ahh, I see, it was all sort of an illusion. That makes more sense, not the start-up list.

    Thanks guys.

    You`re quite right Spike.

    However, if HJT logs do start to appear in substantial numbers in this forum. I will re-sticky that thread sooner rather than later lol.

    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: BTW. Cookiedude. I`m glad your problem is solved. :)

    in task manager, under performance tab, click view at the top and show kernel times (make sure its unchecked).

    "To graph the percentage of processor time in privileged or kernel mode,
    click Show Kernel Times on the View menu. This is a measure of the time that
    applications are using operating system services. The remaining time, known
    as user mode, is spent running threads within the application code."


    google is your friend.. remember that.

    dunno why yall pulling out malware and hijack this like malware can make a cpu go red....
