Specs: Windows 7
Several chrome processes are constantly trying to run in background. Keep getting pop-up warnings "Google chrome using memory" My list of programs does not show Google chrome. All of the processes are preceded with the letters vedgzjyfopt.

Have you tried disabling the updater in services (services.msc in run command)?

Disable any google/chrome entries in services. make sure you hit "apply" after you disable them.

Also set the chrome browser to disable auto-update. the option should be in the settings/advanced settings options.

Note, if you update chrome, you will need to disable the services again.

Oh yea, one more thing. Type msconfig in the run command and disable any google entries listed (and any other items you do not wish to run at startup).

Thanks for the quick response. I do not have Google Chrome on my computer. Nothing for Google shows up in the msconfig list. I think it might have come down with a Flash Player update awhile back but I removed it . Could these processes be residuals?

I've seen them fake flash player update prompt in the past from various file hosting sites...Sounds like you may have gotten the malware from one :/

Thanks Johnw. I am not very good with computer stuff. The RogueKiller looks like it might be problematic for me but I will get someone who can run it for me. I have run two other malware programs. Both shows no findings. Maybe RogueKiller is better.
