i was referred here by nasdaq for some help with my laptop!
it started out with a redirect virus, which seems to be gone, have run several programs, disabled and removed certain others.
the result at the moment is that one of my svchosts keeps maxing out my cpu, causing everything to run extremely slow. i am not sure if i disabled something that i shouldnt have, or am missing something? also, my date and time have been resetting for some time, we tried to create autoexec.bat, which helped, but it has still slowed down both ways, the time being continuously wrong, and my entire system being slow.
i realize my laptop is kind of old, (8 years) but it was running smoothly until just before all of this happened (aside from the time, which has been a while, and also not a huge concern, from what i understand there is an internal battery that keeps it up to date that may be on its way out).
any rate, nasdaq said this:
"The lost of the power from your Motherboard battery may have damage the BIOS, it may need to be flashed."
which is why i am here!
here is my previous thread if needed:
if this or is not a solution/issue, any help is much appreciated! thank you so much!!
