In following senior member Grinler's meticulous advice in his "Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log" I am stumped because when I did, as he advises, a full scan with Ad-Aware (a new, up-to-date version) it ran for two-and-a-half hours and got stuck at file number 173,759. At that time CPU usage was also stuck - at 100%.
This alarming CPU usage is how my CPU is often running recently, and it is the reason I wanted to check for malware.
What to do? Should I submit a Hijack log without having done the recommended prep? Or are there other ways for me to approach this problem.
Any thoughts and advice will be gratefully received.
