Since a few days my computer slowed down. Sometimes it freezes, than goes on, freezes etc.
The CPU gets to 100% every minute. I hear my computer loading and loading, but I do not know what he is doing.
I think svchost.exe is the problem. I saw this my the looking at the processes.
I lost the links of hijack etc, so please provide me with the instructions to see whats the problem and how to fix it.

Not sure if malware is the problem, but it is a good to eliminate as a source.

Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.


Post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This Forum by following the directions in the link below if the programs above have not removed ALL malware. DO NOT post the log in this forum.
