Lately i've been having this very annoying bug. Here's what happens. I would launch a program, such as a game, and shortly after loading, a duplicate instance would appear in the processing menu. It would cause slowdown and i would have to ctrl alt del during the game and end the fraud process. It doesnt just do this with games, but with every other program that i open. If i open Maxthon, my internet browser, i see two Maxthon.exe's in my task manager each with their own seperate memory chunk. If I open Adaware, I see two Adaware.exe's in my task manager, each with a chunk of memory and cpu. Ive even seen some programs do a 3 peat. All cause major slowdown in my pc's performance. Ive done many virus scans but none have picked this up. I'm not even sure if its a virus anymore. Any help or experience would be useful. Thanks.

I might as well give this info:
512mb memory
Athlon 3200

Hello mtj89

Even though you may have performed some virus scans, they may not be identifying everything that is bad. Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may even have performed some of these steps already.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. Please be patient. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and complicate the malware removal process.
