I've noticed my laptop is running quite hard. Checking the Task manager svchost.exe *32 is using approx 50% of my CPU. I have had to set the affinity to only use 1 CPU and reduce the priority of this process to "Low" to reduce the load.
I have run several malware, Antivirus and Rootkill programs and they cannot find the problem.
I'v downloaded process explorer to try and see into the service however upon hovering over the service in question, the label says [Access Denied].
Opening up the service properties shows me the process tab however for some reason on this process window there is no "Services" tab visible whereas on other process I can see it and view all the processes under it. In the the TCP/IP tab, one of the three local addresses is "pop2gifts.co.-websitre.eu-central-1-amazonaws.com".
Every time I tried to download FRST chrome, internet explorer and Firefox all autoclosed, normal browsing is fine except when I try a resolution... I had to download it on another machine and install it from a memory stick. I've attached the log files to the thread
Can someone please help. There's something not right here but it seems to be quite heavily embedded. Thanks!
