So recently I tried installing a program from a shady website. Big mistake. I know I have a virus, but I don't know how to get rid of it. The virus makes my computer freeze up due to all 8 of my cores being put at 100% for ~15 seconds over and over. I've noticed that after the freezing starts, it doesn't seem to stop until I restart my computer. I've done the quick and full scan 3 times each now on Malwarebytes, ran cc cleaner and even an avg scan. Nothing seems to work, and I need help. I've experimented some and found that I don't seem to start freeze unless I'm connected to the internet, and I open a browser and surf the web. Also, the freezing seems to occur in a series of lag spikes that last for up to 6 minutes. The time in between these intervals is random, it seems, as I've gone for an hour without a freeze and then 10 minutes without a freeze.  According to my processes tab, nothing out of the ordinary is causing these freezes, so I am truly baffled. Also, I'll admit, prior to seeing the disclosure that I should not run ComboFix on my own, I ran it on my own. I didn't notice a difference, however, but nonetheless that was my fault. Please help me resolve this annoying issue.

No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. When issues arise with new malware infections or other security tools conflicting with ComboFix, experts are aware of them and can advise users what should or should not be done while providing assistance. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

What specific issues are you having that requires using ComboFix?
