This issue started about two weeks ago when I noticed my system was totally bogged down... opening MS WORD would take 2-3 minutes... loading a web site would take 4-5 minutes... even pulling up Task Manager would take several minutes.
At first, the Pgm X that was spawning itself was named some nonsense name --osrao.exe, weyjehvj.exe, lhrrpqzfza.exe, omuhsiefud.exe, funintyu.exe, WSED.exe, RecCtrlU2.exe, ziupwof.exe, equforyfi.exe, etc.-- it would create up to a dozen or so copies and the only way to stop it was to END PROCESS 'em one by one. Usually they'd show up again, sometimes not though.
