I had a temp file in my Recycle bin, which if I attempted to delete it, returned an error message stating file DC1 is in use and cannot be deleted. System performance has been seriously affected with CPU usage 'blipping' regularly to over 25%. I managed to remove the temp file by deleting my profile but the problem still remains.

I am assuming this is some form of Malware and as such have run Spybot, Malwarebytes & McAfee Enterprise Virus Scan 8.5i in an effort to resolve the issue, the computer is also running Windows OneCare. Each application found something and fixed it but CPU utilisation is still higher than normal.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, did your MalwareBytes scans come back all 0's?
Are you getting a similar to these ...A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message ?

It did return 1 for an object, can't remember which, but it did say it had cleaned the infection.

I'm not getting any of the error messages you mentioned, it's just the performance issue.

Thanks for your reply.

Hello ,OK the other isue then needs to be addressed in the Operating su=ystems forums as it is no longer a Malware issue. Please ask again there and mention we have ruled out malware now. They will try other things there.
You're welcome!!

I am Closing this Topic now. If it is necessry to reopen it PM me or any moderator.
