As of a couple days ago my computer has been really sluggish because of msiexec.exe, NOTEPAD.exe, dllhost.exe and presentationhost.exe, so yesterday I did a few things. Used Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials and Wise Registry Cleaner. A few PUPs were found but nothing too crazy. I ran the registry cleaner after to no avail. I then checked all my drivers, they were up to date. This morning before work I ran a Disc Check on Windows start up and when I got back no changes. The programs are still in my task manager running. It isnt unbearable but they spike for like 50%+ CPU usage randomly. I have never had this problem before. Any help would be appreciated.

 

EDIT: I also did a System Restore and I read on another forum that it could be a corrupt or missing Microsoft Framework NET file.

Hi, best if we get a deeper look.
Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Yes all went well. I have already done the first few topics. I am fairly knowlegable about computers so I already did the first few steps and none of them worked. I will post my Farbar results.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/589933/msiexecexe-slowing-computer/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possibleI advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.  Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :cherry:


Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
