issue: slow proformance in os
oem: e-machine el-1600
os: xp home sp3

found that cause seems to be C:\Documents and Settings\%user%\Application Data\Yfbievid\fedeenk.exe witch has multiple instances that is spikeing the cpu, able to close out in processes tab in task manager but re-occurs

unable to delete file

unable to boot to safe mode

clean boot seems to work, but file remains enabled even after disableing all start up items

attempted to edit file out of registry after create restore point

unable to change permissions on folder to make it not read only

file listed in single user account attempted to delete user account, succedded but process re-appeaered

ran a spybot scan after updateding, no change

unable to delete file after booting to another os on a live cd

booted to recovery console unable to access documents and settings

ran check disk, no change

with being unable to delete the file and unbale to boot to safemode, along w/unable to access windows update, and the auto update and firewall constantly turning off it would appear i am almost out of ideas except for nukeing the install

so does any one know what else i might be able to try?

You have post on various other forums/sites requesting help for the same issue, you have received replies on two of those forums with one suggesting that you check for malware, only GTG malware staff on those forums here are permitted to help you with such issue/s + it is not a good idea to follow guidance from more than one site as it could lead to confusion as to who`s guidance you are following and cause you bigger problems than you already have, as a courtesy inform whatever forums if you no longer require their assistance. Thank you for your understanding.
