All of a sudden out of the blue my laptop just starting being really really slow, so I shut it down and restarted it to see if that would fix the problem but it didn't. I went to the task manager and it says my CPU usage is at 100%. I'm not sure what is going on. I did a virus scan and it came back clean. Any help would be really appreciated, thanks in advance.

Looks like you got some malware.

Try the malware forum. But do this first before posting

Have you addressed this issue to the malware forum yet?

In the meantime...

Check out...Trend's sysclean.com from http://www.trendmicr...ownload/dcs.asp It's about half way down the page...

If you chose to use the following...set it up to run in SAFE MOFE, start it up, then go have a nap...it will take a while...

"If you are not a Trend Micro customer please download the following file.
