This is a topic that was started in the malware removal section of this site, I was told it would better serve my interests to post it here. Here is the link to that thread for any further needed info. Here is the 1st Post. http://www.geekstogo...-slow-computer/

Hi, I am new to this forum. I recently noticed my computer is slow, very slow. I have not been on the computer in question for a long time like 6 months or more. When ever I launch an application my computer will show the circle that goes around and then it stops like 10 seconds later and nothing happens, so I go to the task manager and see rundll32.exe is using 75-100 cpu and my computer slows, until I end the process. I have looked this up and found some answers, but all of them are outdated by atleast a year or more. I didn't install anything yet nor the last time I used it, so if someone can tell me what pre-steps they need me to do, I will gladly. Thanks and sorry for any errors in advance.

Please note: The computer is not connected to the internet, so I have to download stuff via a USB then to the computer and install it. My internet connection on other computers is slow so it may take me a day or two to get back to this topic. Also, my computer is a 64 bit Windows 7 Home premium E-Machines, 500 Gb, I am only using 243 gb of the total hdd. Thanks again, I cannot risk formating this computer, it has a lot of important and unique things on it, pictures,videos,etc. I will try to do anything to make the experts job any easier.

Thanks, Bests

Keep the mouse pointer over rundll32 process and it should show the exact location of the file.

Sorry for the extremely late response, I did not bookmark this page/follow it so I did not see it on a regular basis. I tried the tool and the process doesn't even show up, until I start a program and then it will show up using 80+ CPU and it will be in the folder of the program and the sysWOW64 and the System32 folder. That is all I have, sorry again.
