Posted 08 November 2009 - 12:20 AM

My computer has been CRAWLING for the past 9 months, and is (almost) always running at 100% CPU usage. I have been researching this problem for the past 9 months and CANNOT figure out whether or not I have a virus, malware, or backdoor virus or ??? Auto updates are OFF, and I cannot download the latest Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP (KB974417) update from the MS updates website. I have no idea why this won't download and install.

Obviously there is a problem and I cannot find it. I need another set of eyes to take a look at my scans to see if you can find something that I can't.

This is my first post EVER in any forum, so I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. I have pasted the DDS.txt file below, but cannot attach the Attach.txt and Ark.txt files - the message says "Upload failed. You are not permitted to upload this type of file." Do the files need to be "zipped" first? Is that why I can't attach the files?

Thanx!
