A few months ago, I clicked on a Tumblr post claiming that it could determine your MBTI type from your blog. People later revealed that it was a virus and a few days later, an unidentified browser window was popping up periodically, taking me out of video games and videos. I was able to determing that the browser windows were caused by a program called yesjcdfzux.exe. When I tried to find the program and delete it, it would pop up in another file somewhere on my computer, so the issue is more complex than just the program. Whatever is causing it went dormant for a while, but recently the program has been popping up on my computer again, this time without the browser window. In the Processes tab in the Task Manager,  there are over 20 different instances of this program appearing at a single time, and it also seems to be causing a large number of instances of svchost.exe. There seems to be over 20 instances of svchost.exe as well. I've managed to prevent the program from running, but I haven't been able to keep the multiple instances of svchost. In the Task Manager, my CPU usage will randomly just bump up to ober 75% usage, even without opening any programs. This has made my computer slow to a crawl, where I can't play Steam games or even just watch videos.

hi jionunez,

 

Your post is a few days old. If you still need help you can get a download to use and posts its logs in your reply. We will go from there:

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

    Right-click FRST then click "Run as administrator" (XP users: click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
    When the tool opens
    click Yes to disclaimer.
    Press the Scan button.
    When finished, it will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool was run from.
    Please copy and paste the log in your next reply.

The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory the tool was run from). Please also paste that, along with the FRST.txt into your next reply.
