Hi. First time posting. Today, I noticed my laptop seems to come on whenever I open it. It then cuts off before starting fully. A startup repair program ran a couple of times and the laptop now lasts longer while on. However, when I turn it off, it starts automatically when it is opened. I ran malwarebytes and zone alarm with no effect. I then ran RKill and it stopped 3 programs.

Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:

C:\Windows\sysWow64\SearchProtocolHost.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Common\Google Updater\GoogleUpdaterService.exe
C:\Users\Oshodi\AppData\Local\Temp\IswTmp\DwlRun\eXplorer.exe

I am re running the malwarebytes now. Anyone have any ideas on this one? I am running a Windows 7 ultimate on a sony vaio.

Thanks

That sounds more like a power settings issue as opposed to malware.

I had to remove the battery and disconnect the power source to turn it off once. The problems occured with and without the battery in place. I have checked the power settings - balanced power plan - settings seem ok. A day before I was using a portable hard drive (passport from western digital). It had to be scanned or something for it to work ok. I don't know if this had anything to do with it.

I am now trying to update the windows 7 to see if it helps.
Thanks.
