I've been having a problem where I'm getting multiple programs like COM Surrogate, DVD Upgrader, etc., etc., all running at the same time and bogging down my system terribly.. I know some of them are legitimate functions, but I don't think I need 6 of each running at once haha, and no sooner than I End Process they just come right back.
I've run MaleWarebytes scans in regular and Safe Mode, have the free AVG as my real time protection and have also run the AVG scan in regular and Safe, but nothing has been found.
Just this morning I've done a System Restore in Safe Mode, and it seems to have solved the problem (for now) but something tells me the gremlins are just hiding.
Is there a way to really take a good look at things and get rid of whatever's causing this before it acts up again, because, once it does, it makes navigating the net almost impossible.
