Spybot Search and Destroy once enjoyed a good reputation.  But they have failed to keep their product effective with the current threats out there.    SUPERAntiSpyware is a good replacement.  I would suggest uninstalling Spybot S & D.

 


Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download.

The one piece of information the Speccy will not provide is the make and model of your PSU.  If you know what it is please post this along with the Speccy link which will be generated.

When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

Hi, sorry i had a busy weekend. I did uninstall it and found the test.exe registry entry and removed it. That seems to have helped alot.

My PSU is a seasonic 430w ECO series

The Test.exe is related to Spybot S & D.  Uninstalling this program should have resolved any problems related to that.
