Hi everyone. I know only enough tech stuff to give myself a headache and waste hours of time on research! Please help me solve this: 


My computer was freezing, i discovered ccleaner was gone so I re-downloaded it and when I ran it

there was a high number of entries, including some from a p2p.exe program. I don't have or use one of those.


I have attached screenshots of the ccleaner records. (It doesn't look to me like I have done this correctly!)

some of the stranger entries:


Collab-P2PHost-in-TCP - %SystemRoot%\system32\p2phost.exe 




MCX-in-TCP - %SystemRoot%\system32\ehome\ehshell.exe



My computer recently updated itself to Windows 10 when I wasn't looking, about 3 weeks ago. I REALLY don't know what I'm doing now :(


Thanks so much for your help!!

Start with these free scans:

Could you be infected?  It's possible that malware has corrupted your current protection, so please try a couple of these, independent scans (from this link: https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA15-286A ).  This is in case your current protection is compromised by malware and giving false results:

If you do find infections, I'd suggest posting over in the Am I Infected forum to ensure that all the bad stuff has been removed:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
Please read the pinned topics at the top of the forum for instructions on how to post there.
