I tried Paid Malwarebytes, Paid Hitman, Defender, Emisoft. I even ran RKill prior to running these... no luck. Computer still bogged down and slow.
I just ran combofix. It came up with a bunch of stuff like: c:\programdata\PCDr\6426\AddOnDownloaded\51fdf16e-ecb9-4fa4-8469-76fc9a22293b.dll
Now I am running ESET online scanner.
It presents itself as CPU running at 100% often.
And it seems that there are extra IEexplorer incidents running even when I have it totally closed.
CPU is t9900 Dual core 3.06 ghz with 6mg L2 cache
4 gb ram.
This is by no means a new laptop, but it currently is a better work machine than most $500 units on the market due to the L2 cache.
I'm assuming you will want to see the combofix file. I should wait to Let the eset scan finish before I post it.
