A few days back my graphics card showed 97% activity and was up to 70 degrees Celsius while idle (normally 30 degrees Celsius)

 

I started looking trough different forums and finally found a post about a computer virus that uses your card to farm bit coins.

In the same post combofix was mentioned as the best way to get rid of it so I downloaded it (did not read the warning, I just created an account here and I just saw that you shouldn't use combofix right away)

 

Anyway, right after combofix was done my activity was back to 0%, fan speed went down and temperatures were back to normal.

 

1 day later I start my computer and my fan goes crazy again so I try to start amd cataclyst center to see my activity/temperature but it gives an error when I try to start it.

 

error:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-statix\cli.exe

 

A device attached to the system is not functioning.

 

I am using Windows 8 with the default virus scanner (windows defender)

scanned my PC about 3 times now and nothing found.

 

I have also included the DDS file

 

Please note that I am new to this forum, I hope my problem is formatted correctly and also note that my English is not very good.

 

 

:UPDATE:

 

AMD's Cataclyst center randomly worked again but the virus also seems to be back.

After I closed a process named "AMD External Events Driver Module (32 bit)" It stopped going crazy with my gpu activity.

This is a different process then the cataclys center (amd's gpu control interface)

please note that this program is up to date and has not received updates in the past few days so It's not a problem with AMD software
