CPU Usage peaking regularly

Windows XP (Service pack 3, Dell Dimension DIM3000, Intel Pentium 4 2 GB RAM

Over the last couple of months, my computer's CPU is regularly peaking at 100%. This happens frequently, perhaps every 2-3 seconds to every 10-20 seconds. At times, it's only for a split second and I don't notice it; at other times, it can be for up to 15 seconds and lock me up.

I have read that this could indicate a virus. I regularly run, AVG (daily) and alternately, SuperAnti-Spyware, Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes (Weekly) and Tweak Now Registry Cleaner (every two weeks). They find nothing but the problem continues.

I've tried closing programs to see if it is the offending one. Sometimes that will make a difference. Closing MS Access has worked once or twice. But at other times, I can close all programs and still peak.

I'm posting on this forum as, I believe, you accept Hijack This logs. But before I attach one, please confirm that I'm in the right forum, and I'll reply with the log file.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

I am HelpBot: an automated program designed to help the Bleeping Computer Staff better assist you! This message contains very important information, so please read through all of it before doing anything.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

To help Bleeping Computer better assist you please perform the following steps:

***************************************************

Posted Image In order to continue receiving help at BleepingComputer.com, YOU MUST tell me if you still need help or if your issue has already been resolved on your own or through another resource! To tell me this, please click on the following link and follow the instructions there.

CLICK THIS LINK >>> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/logreply/437925 <<< CLICK THIS LINK



If you no longer need help, then all you needed to do was the previous instructions of telling me so. You can skip the rest of this post. If you do need help please continue with Step 2 below.

***************************************************

Posted Image If you still need help, I would like you to post a Reply to this topic (click the "Add Reply" button in the lower right hand of this page). In that reply, please include the following information:

  • If you have not done so already, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
  • A new DDS and GMER log. For your convenience, you will find the instructions for generating these logs repeated at the bottom of this post.
    • Please do this even if you have previously posted logs for us.
    • If you were unable to produce the logs originally please try once more.
    • If you are unable to create a log please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
    • If you are unsure about any of these characteristics just post what you can and we will guide you.
  • Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.
  • Upon completing the above steps and posting a reply, another staff member will review your topic and do their best to resolve your issues.

Thank you for your patience, and again sorry for the delay.

***************************************************

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan again:

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE


We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit Scanner.

Please note that if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows you will not be able to run GMER and you may skip this step.

Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice


Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log


As I am just a silly little program running on the BleepingComputer.com servers, please do not send me private messages as I do not know how to read and reply to them! Thanks!

Hello Bob and welcome to BC.


We do not recommend the usage of registry cleaners / tools due to the following facts:

*Registry tools can cause irreparable damage to your Operating System
*Registry tools can, as a result of the above, render your pc to be inoperable.

This is done, assuming that the major audience here at this board might be inexperienced users and thus a suggested safeguard from our side.

Cleaning the registry won't really improve system performance, even though there a lot of orphaned keys.
IMHO, if registry cleaning was required, then Microsoft would have added this option. So you use registry at you own risk. After all, a corrupted registry is a corrupted Windows.

Registry Cleaners and System Tweaking Tools



==================================


:step1: Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

  • Put a check mark on the following check boxes:

    • List last 10 Event Viewer log
    • List Installed Programs
  • Click Go and post the result.



:step2: Please run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Go to update tab and download all updates and then perform a full scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Thanks for the reply and help. I'm not sure my problem is a virus, but I can't figure why I peak at 100% usage frequently, sometimes long enough to freeze my computer for up to 30 seconds. Here are the two logs you requested:

Hi hammerinbb,

When did you install Windows Search 4.0 and Ad-Aware?

I have had AdAware for years and download updates. But ever since AVG began employing spyware scanning & allows me to schedule it for daily scans, I haven't used AdAware much.

I didn't know I downloaded Windows Search 4.0. I'm not even sure how you use it.

Bob

Hi,

I will first try to remove Ad-Aware since you no longer use it and see if it will make any changes.

OK. I did and will monitor. What makes you think that might be peaking by CPU? Was it running in the background?

Removing AdAware didn't seem to help much. Should I get rid of Window Search? (I just learned how to use it, since you brought it up.)

Also, sometimes--but not even a majority of the time, I get a message like this:

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: http://cdn.widgetserver.com/syndication/subscriber/Main.js?58240:1

Certain websites trigger this, but the peaking doesn't seem isolated to a few websites--or even programs. Sometimes, closing Access will relieve the peaking.

Hi,

Window Search can slow down overall PC performance so please try to remove it and observe.


To disable script error:
Open Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Advance tab > put a check mark on:
  • Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)
  • Disable script debugging (Other)
Unchecked:
  • Display a notification about every script error
Click Apply > OK

I will delete Windows Search. But I may have forgotten to tell you I use Mozilla Firefox. I'm looking on the Mozilla site to see what they have to say about script debugging.
