This morning I bootup my recently built computer to find that the usual one minute wait to completely boot had been delayed. The thing took several minutes to bring up even Task Manager, it said my comp was using 100% of its CPU power. Worried about a virus, I downloaded SDFix on another computer to remedy the problem (The problem comp has no internet access due to an unrelated glitch). After putting it on a CD (Which Windows warned could have problems for some reason I forgot, something like files being attached ones that weren't being placed on the cd) and getting it on the computer in safe mode, I started the install and the command prompt came up. It was blue, unlike all the screenshots I had seen for it, but it had the same text. But now three hours later it is still at "Checking Running Processes And Services", and doesn't display anything showing progress. Could someone help me?

Also something I noticed, when my comp is in safe mode the CPU is always at 50% regardless of the situation. Hope this helps.

Assuming you are most likely infected, may I suggest you try another scan for the Team to see what might be going on?

Try malawarebytes; instructions are here

What does the text say? Is it a error message of some sorts?
