I'm having a problem with my computer running off and doing it's own thing for a couple of miunutes every few minutes. It's like the processor is getting hijacked. I have run Malware bytes and cc cleaner. (Just got back from a wait so I can continue typing) I downloaded and ran FRST scan. Now I have two logs, Main and Additional.


What do I look for? I am reading the FRST tutorial, but I have not understood if the log will have a marker that identifies a problem, or if I am supposed to recognize a problem and then go about fixing it.




Still searching for the "Read My Mind and Do It" button.

Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html


The FRST tool is not a self-help tool.


If you wish  to initiate a topic and post a FRST log (after reading the above instructions), please do so.  That topic is to be posted in the same forum containing the Preparation Guide.


Please...do not post any malware logs...or solicit information about the malware arena...in this forum, which is devoted to Windows 10 support issues.


To prevent further confusion, I am closing this topic.


Thanks :).
