Hi Im a new member so Sorry If I don't know what to write.
I have a Toshiba Satellite
Intel Pentium CPU 2020m 2.40GHZ
4.00 Ram 3.88 Usable
Windows 8.1 pro
My computer has recently gotten infected with what I am informed of is a Bitcoin Miner Trojan, From what other forums they say. 2-4 days ago I noticed my computer was acting very sluggish so I went to task manager to check out what was happening, as soon as I opened it task manager spiked up to 100% and when back to normal after half a second. I went to the forums to check out what it was people said it was the bitcoin virus Trojan. i ran Malwarebytes they found a file called cracktool,agent.steam soon I noticed it was my cracked game so I deleted the game and utorrent but my computer still has high cpu usage but its not 100% anymore its usually like 89%, 92%, or 96% I don't know what to do my performance is so bad. This also happened to my other computer just today a faster computer I was using suddenly I notice the computer starts acting slow I open task manager and notice as soon as I open it, it spikes up to 66% so I thought it must have been infected to. I forgot to mention my Toshiba satellite has no windows defender on, but the other pc has windows defender on.
