I am not sure that I have a problem, but my computer surely does not seem to be running correctly.
Windows XP SP3 2Gig ram, 250GB HD, P4 2.4G 400, Nvidia 6200 video, NAV2008 updated recently, Linksys Router BEFSR41 v2
My computer slows down to less than a crawl. Looking at windows Task Manager, I see several instances of JAVAW.EXE running consuming 99% of my CPU.
I have deleted them and they come back again & again. There is 1 instance with "ME" as the owner and 1-12 instances of "SYSTEM" owning the rest. If 12 are running they will all share the CPU and consume 99% of the cpu, if only 1 or 2 owned by "SYSTEM" are running they will still consume 99% of the CPU.
I downloaded SYSINTERNALS dot com "Process Explorer" and discovered that a program called VFXDSYS.EXE or VFXDSYSADM.exe starts or owns the rogue "JAVAW.EXE instances owned by SYSTEM", processes and when I KILL the VFXDSYS.EXE program the JAVAW.EXE programs owned by "SYSTEM" do not restart again until after rebooting.
I have sent these programs "VFXDSYS..." to VIRUSTOTAL for analysis and they report 0/41 identified problems.
I have scanned my registry for these files and they appear several times and appear to be connected to something called "VFXDSys Compatibility Synchronisatin" which I also can not find any information on.
I can not find much information on these 2 programs "VFXDSYS..." or any information on JAVAW.EXE getting infected with anything, but it seems wrong to loose the use of my computer to these programs consuming my CPU resources.
Do you know anything about these?
