My video streaming started getting choppy and sound distorting and I couldn't figure out why. I ran a speed test and the problem isn't my connection or speed. I would do a restart and the problem would be resolved. However, several hours later and it would reappear. Choppy streaming and distorted crackling sound to till the sound failed altogether and i would have to restart my pc to get my sound back. The sound was broken throughout windows. A restart has always resolved the issue but it would reappear in a few hours again. I suspected malware so I ran superantispyware with no results. I then ran a malwarebytes scan which detected some issues which were then fixed. My sound isn't failing completely anymore and video streaming isn't as choppy as before, but it is still unwatchable at least until the full vid is loaded. I then ran a sweep with avast and found nothing. I thought perhaps it was my network drivers which I uninstalled and installed new ones. The problem was still there. I pulled up an HD vid on youtube and opened my task manager to see what the blazes is going on. My cpu usage was at 100% and a process called NT Kernel & System was using in excess of 90% of my cpu while the video is buffering, when the video is finished buffering it would go back down to the 1% range. When I stream videos my cpu goes into overdrive and this process seems to be the cause. I have never seen my cpu use that much power from just using my web browser. I usually use firefox but I tested this on firefox and chrome with the same results. While the video is loading my sound starts crackling and breaking, streaming of any kind gets choppy and unwatchable and my browser slows up. I told a friend of mine about this and he said it sounded like a rootikit. I scanned with hijack this while that particular process was stressing my cpu and saved the log. Does anyone know what the cause of this could be. Am I infected or there another cause of this problem.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
We need to create an OTL Report
  1. Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  2. Save it to your desktop.
  3. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  5. In the custom scan box paste the following:
    CODE
    msconfig
    safebootminimal
    activex
    drivers32
    netsvcs
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    eventlog.dll
    scecli.dll
    netlogon.dll
    cngaudit.dll
    sceclt.dll
    ntelogon.dll
    logevent.dll
    iaStor.sys
    nvstor.sys
    atapi.sys
    IdeChnDr.sys
    viasraid.sys
    AGP440.sys
    vaxscsi.sys
    nvatabus.sys
    viamraid.sys
    nvata.sys
    nvgts.sys
    iastorv.sys
    ViPrt.sys
    eNetHook.dll
    ahcix86.sys
    KR10N.sys
    nvstor32.sys
    ahcix86s.sys
    nvrd32.sys
    symmpi.sys
    adp3132.sys
    mv61xx.sys
    nvraid.sys
    /md5stop
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\System32\config\*.sav
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /90
  6. Push the button.
  7. Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt<--Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. I suggest you do this and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

regards myrti
