Everytime I log off, or just leave my desktop on the screen the machine keeps running as if a really big program is working very hard. This will have stopped after awhile, when I leave and come back. I have run spybot s&d, mcafee security suite, ad aware,malware bytes windows defender, on this issue but so far nothing works. :thumbsup:

Just before shutting down, open up Task Manager by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del
Click on the Processes tab
Put a checkmark in the box at the bottom that says "Show processes from all users"
Click on the View menu item, then on Select columns.
Scroll down until you locate "I/O Reads" (without the quotes) and put a checkmark next to it. Then click on Apply (disregard all the other I/O stuff)
Resize the Task Manager Window so you can see all the columns
Then shut down the computer and see what show a sustained increase in activity when it "...keeps running as if a really big program is working very hard." Let us know the Image Name of that process.

If it's hard to see what's going on, you can double click on the CPU, Memory, or I/O Reads column header to sort by that column.

Hi Usasma! I think I followed your directions correctly. There are 4 image names that have very high numbers. They are; spybot s&d__137114,msmeng36000,teatimer44700mcshield.exe 49906. There are quite a number from;1000 to 20000. Is this what you wanted? Thanks very much.

spybot s&d__1371 ,teatimer44700- Both Spybot S and D
mcshield.exe 49906. - McAfee
msmeng- If it is msmpeng- It's a part of Windows Defender
With all of them running it might suggest that you could be infected

I do not use any of these products so I couldn't say for sure

After checking to see if you're infected (links below):
Uninstall the SpyBot Search & Destroy, then reboot and see if it helps (I've been seeing a lot of problems with it recently).
If it's still locking up, then remove the McAfee (but be sure you're not connected to the internet).

Install an antivirus product before connecting back to the internet - and update it immediately upon connecting.

Try a couple of these free, online scanners to see if anything has slipped by your protection:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)
