Hi folks,

 

My nephew bought a gaming PC on ebay...lets just say he got a bit ripped off. I have been trying to determine what the issue is but I am no expert.

 

After startup and just running Chrome the CPU is rightup at 100%...try and do anything else and you get major freeze.

 

Here are some specs

 

hpworkstation xw6200

Windows 7 64x

4gb ram

Intel Xeon 3,2 ghz

 

Ran memtest and it showed no errors

 

Ran CC Cleaner and removed some stuff

 

Checked msconfig and unticked some printer items starting at startup

 

HWfan speed results attached

 

HELP - I am at a loss :)

Thanks guys

So I ran cc cleaner again and another spyware app and it fixed the problem.

Seems like it was spyware taking control of something. Should have known.

Thanks

I suggest that you do a more thorough check and if needs be get the computer checked by the experts on the malware forums, please see the GTG malware redirection information below;

 

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

 

You are welcome btw  :)
