I've recently come across a problem that I haven't experienced before. My PC was running very, very slow yesterday....all symptoms of a virus or malware. I also noticed that I could not get any of my browsers to open. I ran Malwarebytes Anti-malware which found a few entries. I then ran Spybot S&D which found quite a few more. I removed all of them. Also of note is that during this process, I did try to boot in Safe Mode but got the BSoD (Stop: 0x0000007B). Now, the computer runs much faster. However, when I try to open a browser, none will open (Firefox, Chrome, IE). I have also noticed that when I do try to open a browser that the CPU usage goes to 100% and stays there. I finally have to manually kill the process to continue. I also still cannot boot in Safe Mode. Unfortunately, I disabled System Restore a while back due to another virus issue and so I don't have a Restore point to go back to.
