My name is David. I am brand new to this forum and first let me say thank you. It’s very generous for all the members and contributors to share their knowledge and expertise with lay people. This is a mark of excellence and I am very appreciative of this.
I have dealt with malware and viruses before, many of them actually, but this one has left me at the end of my rope and skill set, so I will need extra guidance.
My cpu usage is cycling between 2-100% even if it is idle. I have two iexplore.exe running in my task manage and one of them grows from under 100,000k mem usage to close to 500,000k if not more if I let the cpu run for a while.
I have a windows xp 2002 and I am using internet explorer 8. Unfortunatly I was desperate enough to use combo fix it and cc cleaner, but this was before I found your site and instructions.
Believe me, I am reading to follow whatever advice and guidelines that you provide to the T and I.
