Hi there.

Problem :

I have some process which take 100% of my cpu. It's not everytime, but particularly when i do nothing important ( surf, mails... ) with my computer, not while i'm playing or using some "big" apps. ( Xp Sp2 ).

I found the guilty executable, located in C:/........./Local Settings/Temp, i deleted him, did some Add-Aware/Spybot Scans, Hijackthis too, but nothing to do, he comes back after some times. I searched on web for something with his name, but didn't find anything.

Finally, yesterday, i decided to format ( not only for this thing, i reassure you ), but it comes back.

Maybe did you know that, maybe not, maybe you have some ideas on how to remove it ( please, don't ask me to scan my hard drives with 2354 anti-spywares, i have a lot of gygabites... ).

I post a screenshot of the C:/......../Temp directory with the responsible .exe. As you can see there are not only one, but fews, but all makes the same thing, bring my cpu utilisation to 100%.

Thank you for reading, i hope i wasn't too hard to understand.

It does look an awful lot like malware... So, even if you have lots of gigabytes on your comp, you probably have to run a thourough antispyware, -malware
