my computer, it installs "important updates", so that when I want
it to reboot quickly, it takes forever installing and then
"configuring" during reboot. Sometimes the installations fail;
sometimes they are okay. But I think it's very strange that there
should be constant updates.
I tried System Restore and went back a couple of weeks---as far as
it would let me. No change.
I think there is some sort of malware or virus involved, but I
can't find it. I ran Adaware earlier today. It said it found some
Trojan in Windows 32 system and got rid of it. I wish I had been
paying close attention, because now I wish I had the exact NAME of
the trojan it found. I do remember that it was a HEURistic file.
Anyway, I have atieclxx.exe and csrss.exe running constantly. When
I bring them up on the task manager, it does not give them an
address at system 32. Yet when I search, I find only one instance
of each file and it is in system 32.
Does this mean they are the real things? I don't know.
I have since run Malwarebytes and Avast; full scans of each, which
have turned up nothing.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium; AMD Phenom II X4 925; 8 gig
RAM; 64 bit.
I did run Hijack this and had appended the log to this post, but after reading your instructions, I thought better of it.
I would really appreciate any help you might offer.
