First, to reiterate, you do not need to use Combofix for this, and using it here can render your computer unbootable.
It does not appear you have a bitcoin miner or any sort of malware on your computer. Based on the description of your GPU issues, I would ensure the GPU is able to ventilate properly, but the issue does not seem to stem from malware. There would generally be no point in malware waiting to start taking advantage of your GPU.
Regarding your time synchronization issue, we can synchronize your computer's time if it's currently off, but if you believe the battery in your motherboard has died, you will need to replace it to maintain the clock while the computer is off. However, if you are seeing drifts just while the computer is on, this may be a worse issue. Replacing the battery is usually very easy if you are able to open your computer's case.
Your CMOS battery appears to be a standard CR2032 battery, located in the middle of the PCIe slots. It will just come right out by pulling back the little clip.
Additionally, there is almost certainly (and luckily) no malware in your BIOS.
Please let me know if you have additional questions about anything, if you have any additional issues, or if you are all set.
Thank you very much for the fast reply.
and thanks for the professional help,
I will try to change battery, but
Regarding my time synchronization issue im seeing drifts just while the computer is on, which is a worse issue. Replacing the battery wont help in that case? (waiting for your reply before i open the case and replace it)
Sorry but I disagree with you on this one.
I disagree first, because I didn't explain myself very well,
my problem seems to be VERY VERY bad and now ill explain with as much details as I can.
BG info about my PC :
Win10 formatted to
Win7 pro 64bit SP1
When I'm opening .exe, .avi EVEN Google Chrome MY GPU TEMP jumps surprisingly HIGH to stable 50.
it lasts on 50 until I close the program then it gets back to normal.
AFTER TRACKING THE PROCCESS WITH Asus GPU tweak all of the listed above programs are making my GPU use his max GPU CLOCK & Memory Mhz.
. which is very very weird.
Very very weird thing I noticed is that
after I deleted Google chrome(Infected program) and downloaded Firefox, firefox had no virus and has stable 30 "c" temp.
I tried replacing Skype(Infected) With Discord but then again, No luck . Discord seems to be infected as well.
I used HWmonitor to measure the Temp and RPM of the GPU and at idle after having the infected program on,
they cap at Stable 48"C" with 1970 RPM.
all the other games I play are infected with this virus, i play all games on lower settings, my GPU nvidia driver is set to Max Performance to get most FPS. before this program has appeared League of legends would only take 40C on lowest settings and now its 48"C" with 1970 RPM.
my GPU is asus gtx 770 directuii
my proccessor is i7 4790
and my motherboard is asus z97
the PC was purchased 3 years ago and 2 months, I clean dust very often, last time I cleaned was 1 week ago.
there must be a way to solve it,
Perhaps this might help -
As you have seen in the FRST logs,
I am connected to a homegroup with 2 other PC's
( my father use the other 2 PCs)
Do you think theres a virus inside the Router / Other pcs connected that has moved to my PC through the net?
Besides, I have 1tb Harddrive connected to the PC along the 128gb SSD, the drive is a backup of my old PC (win10 i formatted)
could it be that there's a virus there that is in charge of this problems?
I know that bitcoin isnt considered as a virus among other AV programs.
I'M CERTAIN there's a Bitcoin miner because of a video I saw in YT with other people describing the same problem as I have, I'll quote them and post link in here this might help you understand better, my english isnt quite perfect and im sorry if its hard to understand.
the comment that describes my problem is this(not the same virus, but i think theres strong connection here) :
The quote is down below
I haven't noticed anything while playing games but , when i don't move my mouse for 1-2 minutes the CPU and GPU start overloading and overheating. I use Open Hardware Monitor to monitor the temperatures and as i said the temperature on my GPU instantly jumps to 50 C with 100% workload (seen on the Open Hardware Monitor) until i move my mouse ... when i move the mouse the workload jumps to normal (0%) and the temp is also lowering. This doesn't happen while i have the Task Manager opened though ... i read that this is the case so the program (virus, bitcoin miner) doesn't get noticed in the Task Manager. I did a format to my pc but after a day or two this starts happening again. I also tried different anti malware and anti virus programs but they can't find anything. Can this virus be in the BIOS ? I would really appreciate if anyone can help me on this matter ...
I have made a comparison with a friend regarding these programs listed above that causes the gpu temps to go higher.
Skype doesnt require all of the Clock speed & memory on their computers.
nor do AVI's.
I'm afraid the worse problem of the clock is what causing this virus with GPU.
Thanks Ian Carroll for your help, I appreciate it alot I adore you for not giving up, Because I haven't . We must find a way to cure this off my PC!
