Hello,

 

I have scanned my computer several times with diffeferent anti-spyware programs and i haven't found any malware or virus from my computer but i think that there might something because svchost.exe is running all the and uses very much of my cpu. My laptop heats pretty much even when idling because of svchost.exe running all the time. I don't know what do so i came here to ask help. I attached my hijackthislog. Thanks for help.

Thanks for replying. I scanned my computer with AdwCleaner and i found  only few problems which i cleaned. After that i used Farbar recovery scan tool. I attached logs on this reply. I don't knowh if my computer works better because i have to wait and see if  svchost.exe (netsvcs) starts running background.

I suspect that these Start up entries to upgrade to Windows 10 were the issue.

I do not need the Windows 10. So I will not update.

You may want to check with the Windows 10 experts if you should at all update to Win 10.

This is not my forte.

The problem is with the task to install Windows 10.
Read the instructions and I suggest you run this stopper.

Your best bet right now, if you have Windows 7 or 8.1 and don't want to upgrade to Windows 10 just yet - remember, you have until July 28, 2016 to upgrade for free - is to cut KB 3035583 off at the knees. The easiest way to do that is by running GWX Control Panel**. Microsoft has provided no changelog, of course, and no indication what this version of Get Windows 10 does that's any different from the five previous versions..."

Read the instructions and decide if you want to run this tool.

I am thinking about Windows 10. But now i think that i won't update because i have concerns about privacy because Microsoft updated privacy policy in Windows 10. So that's why i am waiting and thinking about it. I attached fixlog below.

Quoted from my last post.

Read the instructions and I suggest you run this stopper.


Read the instructions carefully.

If you run it you will see that you will still be able to update to Windows 10 upgrade later.

It's your call.
