Hi - I posted a hijack log under the same Topic Title a few days ago. The person who looked at it said I was clean and suggested I reduce the startup programs. I did this but still the problem persists. I have been watching the talk manager while running my browser (avant browser). I notice that when the computer is idel and using very little CPU and the browser is open every 30 seconds or so there is a "spike" up to 100%. On further investigation I discoverd that another avant.exe appeared briefly alongside the one showing. It then disappeared and the CPU usage returned to normal. When I am quicck I can end the process f this second avan.exe and it disappears but my browser remains open. Any suggestions as to what it might be and how to track it down? Thanks

If your computer seems to be slow, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.

You can download and use Process Explorer or Glarysoft Process Manager to investigate all running processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. These tools will show the process CPU usage, a description and its path location. If you right-click on the file in question and select properties, you will see more details about the file.

The Process Explorer window shows two panes by default: the upper pane is always a process list and the bottom pane either shows the list of DLLs loaded into the process selected in the upper pane, or the list of operating system resource handles (files, Registry keys, synchronization objects) the process has open. In the menu at the top select View > Lower Pane View to change between DLLs and Handles.
