Computer runs very slow and pauses even during simple things like typing the note. Noticed that Ping program is running in processes list - usually 2 or 3 occurrences, sometimes taking up to 50% or more of the cpu time.

When I close them using end process, they show up again within a minute or so.

Related issue is frequent

Any ideas what to do? I tried downloading malwarebites and running it, but still having the problem.
