Hello Geeks2Go,

Glad I found this wonderful site, cuz I am about to wit's end. Firstly, I am not sure if I should post this problem in here or the Security forum.

Over the last couple of days, this problem started out semi-problematic not that big of a deal but has gotten progressivley worse. It seems that anytime I run a Flash related site or video, Firefox, my CPU goes to 100% and RAM in the 80-85% range. I have to close my browser/or flash related program/site....it then takes my laptop about 15-20 min. to return to normal. I have uninstalled Flash and reinstalled, problem still exists.

I also just noticed that I have a total of (14) svchost.exe showing in Task Mgr...only 1-2 active but should there be that many?

Thanks so much for your time and help! :)

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

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).

It's not necessary an infection, but it's better to check that possibility first.
