Hi, here's my situation. While trying to play World of Warcraft, my graphics would freeze and/or turn black, but I could still hear responses to pressing keys and randomly clicking around. I went to various WoW forums to try to figure out my problem, I updated my video card and CPU drivers, I did a fresh install of WoW, etc and it didn't help. Then I noticed that whenever the graphics froze, it was because CPU usage went to 100%, and if I just waited a few minutes, it would drop below 100% and my graphics would work again. So then I started looking at threads about CPU usage, and I got the impression that I might have a virus, so I did some scans. I ran Ad-Aware and didnt find anything out of the norm, but then I ran housecall anti virus and I found backdoor.win32.dssdoor.c. So then I ran spybot, stinger, and a-squared, and when I did, my normal antivirus software (avast) finally gave me a popup about the backdoor. So I used those programs to delete any infected files, and I tried to run WoW again, and I still have the same problem. So what should be my next step? Do you think the problems are related or unrelated? Thanks.
