I am having serious issues with my cpu. I have run malware bytes a number of times and it finds an assortment of viruses. It doesn't get rid of them though and they keep showing up when I run it. Microsoft Security Essentials has been disabled and I am unable to get it up and running. Firefox frequently freezes up because ping.exe is using up all remaining resources putting my cpu usage at 100 in my task manager. If anyone can help me fix my cpu it would be greatly appreciated.

Launch it.Click on change parameters-Select TDLFS file system

Click on "Scan".Please post the LOG report

Please download GMER from here(doesnot work on 64 bit OS)


Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.

GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic Full Scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)

If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
