It all began with a fake xp security 2011 virus.I had a whole bunch of trouble with that 1 because the virus took control of pc, it wouldn't allow me to go on the internet on nothing. i think i "fixed" that by booting on safe mode then i downloaded Malwarebyts program.
when i was done runing the program the pc rebooted then a windows activation screen popped up . I was thinking it was a virus to i didnt select nothing . i looked it up an figured out it wasent a virus, if it dont ask you 4 credit card info.
After i activated every thing seemed to be ok until i connected to my lan line. Once i connect it take almost 5 to 10 mins. for it to slow down drastically. svchost.exe ends up takeing all the cpu and peak at over 100,000 memory usage. (to type this thread ive had to "End the processes" of svc multiple times)
Ive tryed to run all of my anti-virus programs and my ccleaner and it dosent detect anything.
It also dosent let the "Automatic update" work (i currently have updates turned off)
oh one other thing i noticed is that when i would manually try to update threw the actual windows site, the internet would say "the connection was reset" and to try again. every single time!
one other thing i was looking 4 ways to fix this svchost problem and i ran into this Paretologic program that provided a free scan. it came up with like 200 problems but you had to pay for it to fix them.
Thank You 4 your time
Help Would Be GREATLY apreciated!
