Hi all, I've been having a problem where my HDD light suddenly becomes solid, and my computer slows right down. I won't be running any intensive applications, it'll just occur, so I don't think it's a memory problem. I have 4 GB of memory on a 2.1Ghz dual core processor. I don't know if I need to be posting any logs. I'm running Nod32 antivirus and Comodo firewall.

1) Check Scheduled Tasks to see if something is scheduled to run in the background
2) Check your AV and any backup programs to see if you have them set to run when the system is idle
3) Open task manager to the processes tab and sort on the cpu column with highest usage at the top. When the HD pegs, which app is using the cpu?

Hi, Is this the same computer as in this Topic in the Am I Infected Forums? If so I refer you to this that was posted by Louis.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic467770.html/page__view__findpost__p__2832088

Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on, the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.


If this is a second computer, Please let us know.

Thanks
Roger
