Just recently my browsers began to crash without notice, mainly firefox and internet explorer. As soon as I start them up, they give me "Not Responding". The only way I can browse with firefox is if I uninstall the program and reinstall it with the installer I still have in my downloads. It only responds the first time I bring up firefox, after if it crashes or I close it, have to reinstall to get it to work again.

Also, a lot of iexplore.exe and svchost.exe have been constantly eating up my physical memory and cpu usage. I don't know why so many of them keep popping up.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MR Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
