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!
