Hello. Im flabbergasted. This day, during playing my videogame I have discovered that the computer slowed down. A lot. Task manager shows 100% HDD usage. Antivirus scans (malwarebytes, adwcleaner, drweb cureit) showed nothing, except one; RogueKiller finds some recognized dll's but cant delete them.

 

[Hj.KnownDLL] (X64) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\KnownDLLs | _Wow64cpu : Wow64cpu.dll  -> ERROR [5]
[Hj.KnownDLL] (X64) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\KnownDLLs | _Wow64win : Wow64win.dll  -> ERROR [5]
[Hj.KnownDLL] (X64) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\KnownDLLs | _Wow64 : Wow64.dll  -> ERROR [5]
[Hj.KnownDLL] (X86) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\KnownDLLs | _Wow64cpu : Wow64cpu.dll  -> ERROR [5]
[Hj.KnownDLL] (X86) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\KnownDLLs | _Wow64win : Wow64win.dll  -> ERROR [5]
[Hj.KnownDLL] (X86) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\KnownDLLs | _Wow64 : Wow64.dll  -> ERROR [5]

 

I suppose this is a virus, because the day before I was looking at some porn on sites which I dont generally view and well... porn sites are full of this stuff.

But, of course, to make stuff funnier - the abnormal HDD usage sometimes stops. For now, its normal.

Question is; is roguekiller showing a false alarm, or not?

I seem to have the same 6 Registries as you. I have no idea where I could've possibly got them from, but I'm also getting the same error as you. Error 5 being "ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED" I'm really hoping for help on this as well, so I'm bumping for you in hopes of someone being able to help us. If I find anything that helps me, I'll post it here, otherwise if ANYONE could be of any assistance, I'm sure we'd both be greatly appreciative.

 

I've tried running in safe mode, and am on a Windows 8.1, it still gave the same error. Also ran many malware programs myself, which as you said, came up with nothing.
