I'm running 7 Home Prem.  system is spawning svchost.exe & msiexec.exe processes.  I have run multiple utilities, Combofix, speedyPC Pro, etc. researched on other forums & still cannot find the root of the problem.


The laptop is a vintage Toshiba but does what the user needs to have done....  only 2GB & a 1.5 single processor - so getting a few cycles to troubleshoot is really frustrating 'Safe mode' appears to function in normal limits.


Open to any ideas, please

Since you have run ComboFix...I suggest you follow the procedures outlined in Steps 6-8 of Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html and post a new topic in the forum containing the Prep Guide.  If you have the ComboFix log, also paste the contents of it into your new topic, along with the FRST results.


Once that is done, this topic will be closed to avoid confusion and you should follow the suggestions provided in your new topic.
