My computer has become infected with SysProtect. At the same time I got the malware, my computer began running very slowly and frequently freezing up. The task manager says that my CPU is always running at 100% -- using its total capacity. I also have gotten $sys$DRMServer.exe on my computer somehow, which seems to be eating about 28-32% of the CPU operation. I don't, however, have any of the Sony programs or music that is associated with $sys$DRMServer.exe.
My questions are:
1. How can I get rid of SysProtect?
2. Is it just annoying pop-ups or is it responsible for my computer running slowly and at the max?
3. Is $sys$DRMServer.exe somehow tied in to the other problem?
4. How can I get rid of $sys$DRMServer.exe?
Thanks for any help you can give me!
