good afternoon everyone. I have a laptop (windows 7 home x64bit) 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:
eset online scanner
f-secure online scanner
windows defender offline
Many many things have been removed, but the problem persists.
i did run combofix last night not knowing i probably shouldn't have.
i've tried uninstalling combofix with no luck
i did combofix / uninstall
all that did was open an explorer window
i also tried renaming the file to uninstall and running it.
that just ran it like normal
any help is appreciated.
