ss&d uses 100% cpu

  1. I am running through the steps to clean my system and prevent malware. When I got to the step of installing ss&d, my cpu jumps to 100% on process SpybotSD.exe

    I have attached a fresh HTJ log.

    It's quite normal for Spybot to take up a lot of CPU cycles while it's scanning.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    As Didou quite rightly says. Sypbot will use a lot of cpu cycles while it is scanning and this is perfectly normal.

    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).

    O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search -

    O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} -

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
