Hello

I have a weird problem tht i cant solve .. I scanned the pc using kaspersky and adaware and nothing is found .. i guess its something more complicated

Whenever i use internet explorer 7 my pc slows down and my cpu usage just rise to 100% but tht happens often when i play a flash game like poker on facebook or when i watch a video on youtube it also happens when i use explorer Search

i checked all the topics related to tht problem .. some said its because of the pishing filter .. i disabled it and still iexplorer.exe uses a huge amount of cpu

This is my first post actually so i dont know what am required to do .. tell me what apps should i use and logs to post and i will

Thnx

Oh and Btw i dunno exactly where to post this topic so i posted it in 2 sections .. just delete the one in the wrong section ..

Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same thing?

Is Firefox OK?

Yep...

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Something new came up :/ .. after finishing the scan with Adaware it displayed 14 critical errors .. most of'em are tracking cookies and a file called svchost.exe in C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe it was found as a trojant agent .. so i just clicked on delete Then while deleteing these 14 files a window appeared and a countdown of 60 secs began and after tht 60 secs the pc restarted ... it was without a taskbar at first so i restarted again and found tht the taskbar turned into the classic shape .. and there is no sound at all .. Internet explorer doesnt open at all ( so am using opera now) .. i opened the task manager .. and lots of process are missing ... but the high cpu usage thing is a little bit better now .. i opened flash applications and now the cpu usage is 80 not 100 !!!! but isnt 80 still high too? Any way is there a way to get a clean svchost.exe file? and if i just put in its directory is every thing goin to work as before?

Yes, go ahead with HJT log.
svchost.exe, located in C:\WINDOWS\system32, normally is a legit Windows file, so they'll have to check it out.

sounds normal to me flash objects on a slower computer take tons of power i am running a dualcore 2.4ghz and it uses one of the entire cores it would probly use part of the second if it was built to run DC (meaning flash)
as for the other things using 100% that makes no sense all i know is flash uses alot


(i probably dont know what im saying just throwing this out there)
