I have a couple of issues and hope you may help or refer me. Recently my compy has been ill with various nasties of sorts, thx to your help (and my new found patience) i have almost got the system back on track. I am currently running scans of your recommended programmes for what i hope is the last time. A couple of the scans have come thru clean, fingers crossed.
However, whilst i am running this lot of scans my cpu has rocketed, the reason is the system idle process is maxing out my cpu (for an idle process it apparently does plenty). This is causing delays in opening requested programmes.
q1, should i worry about this?
q2, does this process need to run at all and what does it actually do?
q3, is there a safe way to end the process should you answer no to the last q?
q4, if i can and do end this process will the system still lag?
The next query i have is about spybot. It has detected on several occasions the following problems-
Kazaa.Irc.DarkIrc11.LiteStalky: Autorun settings (Registry value, nothing done)
Log: Shutdown: System32\wbem\logs\wbemess.log (Backup file, nothing done)
Log: Activity: SchedLgU.Txt (Backup file, nothing done)
--- Spybot - Search && Destroy version: 1.3 ---
I have googled LiteStalky and spybot comes out the clear leader in recommendations as the prog to delete this, so why cant I? it is highlighted in red on the problems found screen in spybot and should have, along with the others, been deleted 4 times now but alas they seem quite comfortable in compy. How can i rid my dear compy of these issues?
To rid my compy of the nasties I have used the following progs-
Ad-Aware SE Personal
CCleaner (This is gr8 by the way)
Ewido Security Suite (I have come to love this )
greyknight17 Desktop Repair
Hjt (I have studied logs from this but have yet to submit one anywhere, would you recommend i let you have one?)
McAfee Stand Alone
(WOW on paper thats a lot of progs but what a killer cocktail)
All of these programmes are the updated\new versions.
Your help in this matter is both appreciated and valued and would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for providing what i would say is an invaluable service, yes the world is going mad but good decent people like yourselves make it so much more bearable .
