So, i downloaded a torrent. Went to open it..it opened, and then nothing..i got frustrated and just deleted the files.
next time i booted my computer..WAM!
svchost shoots my processes to 100% and they stay there. I cant open task manager or soft shutdown my computer.
I flatline it, and when i boot it next, here is the list of all the problems and what i am currently doing just to get this little browser working.
on boot, if i dont open task manager ASAP, svchost will lock my cpu usage to 100% and not let me do anything, literally.
Once i have opened task manager, and my computer has loaded completely, i wait for svchost.exe to spike, and i just end task and i have my computer back..sorta.
After that is done, my computer then begins the slow degrade untill it finally crashes.
First my desktop theme begins to revert to windows 2000/nt wannabe (i use xp pro)
Then the virus disables my sound card/drivers, then it removes all the selectable icons from my web browser, then it wont allow me to open programs..untill finanlly it just sits there at 3% cpu usage, not letting me do anything..untill i hit reset.
