Hi there.

 

This is my system:

 

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU P7450 @ 2.13GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 4056 Mb
Graphics Card: Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family, 1804 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 476837 MB, Free - 407942 MB;
Motherboard: Dell Inc., 0F642T
Antivirus: McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, Updated and Enabled

This is my problem:

My computer often times out when accessing regular websites. I look in my TaskManager and see multiple processes running when my wifi is turned on. Including fixmapi, logagent, powershell, dvdupgrade, Windows Picture Acquisition Wizard etc.  I'm using IE, exclusively.

McAfee has logged attempts of these programs trying to access websites in Russia, NY etc.

McAfee and Microsoft full computer virus scans don't seem to be finding any problems. I suspect otherwise.

 

Thx,

 

Jay!

I think this answered my problem I posted above.  I've had the same exact problems.

I think this thread below solved my problem.  I ran the ESETPoweliksCleaner and found the virus.

I merged your other topic into this own. There is no need to post those comments in someone else's topic where they are already getting help.

Do you need further assistance?

Ok but bBe aware that Poweliks has the ability to download more malicious files so systems risk being infected by other malware, causing a more damaging infection and compromising security. Once the malware compromises a machine it's able to receive commands from a remote attacker and has the capability to steal system information which may be used by cyber-criminals to launch other attacks...see What is Poweliks?
