These start appearing after a reboot and the system still works normally until the number of processes gets past 1500.  After that, it's time for a reboot and start over again.

 

Logs from FRST64 are attached.

 

I run Kaspersky and Malware Bytes continually.  I have done the "normal" scans with no results.  System restore failed to complete.

Greetings glkd and :welcome: to BleepingComputer's Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.

My name is Oh My! and I am here to help you! Now that we are "friends" please call me Gary.

If you would allow me to call you by your first name I would prefer to do that.

===================================================

Ground Rules:
  • First, I would like to inform you that most of us here at Bleeping Computer offer our expert assistance out of the goodness of our hearts. Please try to match our commitment to you with your patience toward us. If this was easy we would never have met.
  • Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I will provide for you while we work on your computer together. I need to be certain about the state of your computer in order to provide appropriate and effective steps for you to take. Most often "well intentioned" (and usually panic driven!) independent efforts can make things much worse for both of us. If at any point you would prefer to take your own steps please let me know, I will not be offended. I would be happy to focus on the many others who are waiting in line for assistance.
  • Please perform all steps in the order they are listed in each set of instructions. Some steps may be a bit complicated. If things are not clear, be sure to stop and let me know. We need to work on this together with confidence.
  • Please copy and paste all logs into your post unless directed otherwise. Please do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems simply stop and tell me.
  • If you do not reply to your topic after 5 days we assume it has been abandoned and I will close it.
  • When your computer is clean I will alert you of such. I will also provide for you detailed information about how you can combat future infections.
  • I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so.
===================================================

Now that I am assisting you, you can expect that I will be very responsive to your situation. If you are able, I would request you check this thread at least once per day so that we can try to resolve your issues effectively and efficiently. If you are going to be delayed please be considerate and post that information so that I know you are still with me. Unfortunately, there are many people waiting to be assisted and not enough of us at BleepingComputer to go around. I appreciate your understanding and diligence.

Thank you for your patience thus far.

Please do this.

After my original post, I went back and reran all of the "standard" virus checkers. I never could get Hijack to run. Malwarebytes kept giving an error that a server connection couldn't be established (I had full internet access during the time it was running). As I had been leaving the task manager running so that I could keep tabs on when the barrage of processes was going to cause trouble (somewhere above 1,500), I checked and found that only the usual number was running (I had rebooted after the last tool was run).

 

Now, after several days, things are still running normally.  I run Malwarebytes Premium and I've noticed some supposedly serious stuff being caught.

 

Since I wasn't having any more trouble, I didn't run the Farbar tool.

 

Thanks for your help in this matter.

 

Regards,

Gary

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
