Greetings.  My first post here.  And sorry from some wrong English grammar.  From SE Asia.


I have recently removed a miner that increases my CPU and GPU temps and usage disguised as a RealTek audio process (I found it inside the folder of a VIDEO GAME's Roaming).  It's gone now but the minute traces of might might still be there.  Which might be a catalyst to my new problem.


Recently I have seen multiple instances of regsvr32 and iexplorer in my Task Manager. And I'm worried because it might not screw my PC's performance and increase its temps/usage % (in my end though) but it might affect the first 20 mins of a computer's stability turned on from a cold boot.  It might be doing a memory leak and increased RAM storage though, which I am worrying right now.  I need help very fast.  Thank you. I have provided a screenshot of my Task Manager.

Separate Replies for each log is probably easiest.
Download : ADWCleaner to your desktop.  Make sure you get the correct Download button.  Sometimes the ads on BleepingComputer will mimic the real Download button which should say: Download Now @BleepingComputer
NOTE: If using Internet Explorer and you get an alert that stops the program downloading, click on the warning and allow the download to complete.
Close  all programs, pause your anti-virus and run AdwCleaner (Vista or Win 7 => right click and Run As Administrator).
Click on Scan  and follow the prompts. Let it run unhindered. When done, click on the Clean button, and follow the prompts. Allow the system to reboot. You will then be presented with the report. Copy & Paste this report on your next reply.

  • Pause your anti-virus.  Close all browsers.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
  • Get FRST from
  • You need to download the appropriate tool for your PC.  If you don't know if you have a 32 or 64 bit system get them both.  Only one will work and that's the right one.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer. 
  • Check the Addition.txt box
  • Press Scan button. 
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.  
  • Please copy and paste log back here. 
  • It will generate another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply. 

    Get Process Explorer
    Save it to your desktop then run it (Vista or Win7 - right click and Run As Administrator).  
    View, Select Column, check Verified Signer, OK
    Options, Verify Image Signatures
    Click twice on the CPU column header  to sort things by CPU usage with the big hitters at the top.  
    Wait a full minute then:
    File, Save As, Save.  Note the file name.   Open the file  on your desktop and copy and paste the text to a reply.

    Use IE and go to http://eset.com/onlinescan and click on ESET online Scanner.  Accept the terms then press Start (If you get a warning from your browser tell it you want to run it).  
    # Check Scan Archives
    # Push the Start button.
    # ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.

    # Push the BACK button.

    # Use Notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
    # Copy and paste that log as a reply.
    Let's also try the bitdefender quickscan.
    When it finishes there is a View Report option at the bottom.  Click on it and copy and paste the report (even if it says nothing found).

    Right click the aswMBR.exe and select Run As Administrator to run it
    Click the "Scan" button to start scan
    On completion of the scan (Note if the Fix button is enabled and tell me) click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply
