good afternoon everyone.  I have a laptop that when offline works perfectly fine.  when i connect to the network a minute later an instance of explorer.exe starts and my cpu goes to 100 and stays there.  I did notice that when this happens if i shutdown i can see of flash of something that is running, but not visible.  So far i have run many removal tools such as:

adwcleaner

eset online scanner

ccleaner

f-secure online scanner

windows defender offline

security essentials.

i did run combofix last night not knowing i probably shouldn't have.

Many many things have been removed, but the problem persists.

 

any help is appreciated.

 

 

edit: windows 7 home x64bit

thanks

jason

So first question is did you uninstall combofix correctly?

i also tried renaming the file to uninstall and running it.

   that just ran it like normal
