Hello. I recently had a run in with Ramnit.A malware, but had it fixed here thanks to the expertise of azarl. I still have some corruptions in my system files though. One of the main problems lately has been svchost files taking up CPU at specific intervals. I used Windows Performance Analyzer to try to pinpoint the threads being run and what exactly was causing the problem. I'm not sure exactly what to make of it though. Is it possible to upload the .etl file here and have someone look at it?

Nevermind, I found the problem. The HOSTS file that was recommended was causing the DNScache to slow down everything. You guys should mention it if you suggest downloading MVPS HOSTS.
