Alright, this is what happens.

-On startup, Defaultsearchtab.exe crash message appears. I don't know what that is or if it even related.

-After a while, Norton will show a popup warning about high memory consumption by some program that I'm using.

-Programs will start being non-responsive on and off.

-Whole computer will temporarily freeze on and off.

 

Tried running Norton, malwarebytes and MS safety scanner. Nothing has helped.

 

Thank you

It's the usual basic message for this sort of thing.

 

DefaultSearchTab.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.

 

This is the error detail if that helps.

 

szAppName : DefaultTabSearch.exe     szAppVer : 0.0.0.0     
szModName : DefaultTabSearch.exe     szModVer : 0.0.0.0     offset : 00051b90
