I have 2 HD on the pc and the pc runs fine untill I open certain files on my second HD, then Explorer goes to 100% of the cpu usage. Someone ran combofix and it found a virus (Autorun ) we managed to get rid or so we thought. It returned later and anti virus software bitdefender couldn't detect it. I was trying to get a copy of combofix but can't get it to download from the internet,can anyone help with a copy and also any ideas for getting shut of the beast as the only way to stop it at the moment is to do a hard reboot and it will run ok untill I go into my 2nd HD files. cheers

As the note at the top of this forum says, you should not be using ComboFix without the help of someone who is trained in its use. It's a powerful program that can be potentially damaging to your system; it is not like other virus/malware software. If you want more details see this thread.

What type of file are you trying to open? This is only occurring on certain files or anything on your second hard drive?

If you're really concerned about a virus (what you describe may or may not be virus related based on the info given) I would suggest following this guide and posting the resulting logs as instructed.
