"any idea what process was sucking up the CPU? or what kind of disk activity you were getting? network activity?
i'm assuming since you say across the city, none of these were the same LAN, but not something like a VPN logon type issue with slow ISP speeds on a specific carrier...
one other thought, MS update, Malicious software removal? specific infection caused it to get bogged down. just grasping here. "
Processes were normal. We checked that out. nothing unusual. Disk activity was minimal to none. No network activity as once this started, we unplugged all network cords.
As far as Lan, VPN....negative. there are only 3 computers (leasing office) that are connected to the same netowrk. My computer is on a different one, and the other two are on their own networks as well. No VPN, no Remote Connections. ISP are the same on all computers...Time Warner Cable High Speed Cable.
MS Update -all updates were installed. Virus Scan recorded nothing. same goes with the firewalls on all computers. Nothing is out of the ordinary or suspicious. Event Logs, Security Logs...everything...normal. There is absolutely no footprint, no recollections....or anything...that would indicate this had ever happened.
I contacted Time Warner and they said no outages, no security threats, everything was normal. Ive got 3 techs also working on this problem. The problem no longer exists. We are just trying to figure out what happened, how it happened, and how to fix it for future reference.
This had occured in Kansas City, Missouri.
