Howdy all
I think my computer may have picked some sort of virus this week.
I use a dongle by a mobile network provider to access the internet. When i now connect this dongle, my cpu goes into overdrive & the computer eventually slows down so much that it freezes. After pushing CTRL/ALT&DEL i can see in Windows Task Master that a program called tscui.exe is working overtime, when i select to end this process in task master things get better.
From seaching on the internet i'm not sure if i have picked up a virus/trojan.
I have a current version of Kapersky which i've updated & run several times over the last two days, but this has had no effect. So i installed & ran Combofix & although things have improved i've since read that i may have been a bit too keen & this may have not been the way to go...
I'm not 100% sure when the problem started, but mid week i was searching for some technical documentation related to work, i downloaded a document in Danish via Google & then tried to use their translate facility, this caused my computer to freeze. I had to re-boot but then found the document on a Chinese site which i have used previously without any problems. I've only noticed the tscui.exe problem since this browsing session..
I've still got quite a bit of stuff that i need to buy for Christmas via the internet, but am now reluctant to use my pc to input credit card details etc..
Was Combofix the right way to go & will it have fixed the problem ? What's the best thing for me to do now ??
I appreciate any help anyone can offer..
