This is an old Vista Home Premium (service pack 2) laptop that I have and want running smooth again. The files JRT finds are always:



C:\Users\utilisateur\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\1A0ASBV8


C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\1A0ASBV8



There's always 5 of each, and the bold text changes everytime.



Issues I'm experiencing and for which I found no solution:


-svchost.exe permanently taking 50% CPU

-windows uptade unresponsive (searches forever)

-failed security update KB3073921 (error code 80242016)

-unable to use the "turn windows features off" option (prog bar never advances, CPU @ 100%)


What I've done:


-verify which svchost.exe takes that much CPU; likely not a virus (all services under the host are legitimate windows/system32)

-try run windows update in safemode + network (cannot load it, wont open)

-chkdsk /f /r (not sure how to interpret the results; i have the log)

-sfc /scannow (no violation found)

-try download and install failed update from windows (same result, msu file opens but loads/searches forever)

-run scans with: Panda Global 2016, MB Antimalware, ESET, AdwCleaner, MB Antirootkit & JRT (1 before and 1 after using rKill)


Panda, Antimalware, Adwrcleaner & Antirootkit found nothing. Eset found 6 things which I removed and didnt came back. JRT is the issue.


All problems listed above ramain.



Thank you in advance for your help!
