|Lately, svchost has been using 100% of my processor. |
I have been nailed twice by malware in the last few months. Once I was able to clean the system with Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes and Super AntiSpyware.
The second time, I couldn't get anything to work but combofix.
I started to notice that when I close firefox sometimes it would not be removed from the task manager and it would show 100% cpu usage.
Then that seemed to change to the svchost.exe. Now after using my computer for a while it jumps to 100% CPU usage.
Also I can't update windows anymore. When I try, everything seems to be working fine and then it says the following updates not installed.
On top of that if I try to update using IE to update, I get the Internet Explorer cannont display the webpage I seem to get redirected when trying to access other pages about "windows updates blocked"
I have run a virus, malwarebytes and super antispyware scan with no problems listed.
my host file appears to be clean but clearly somehow I am still be blocked from certain sites and redirected when asking about update problems.
Any help is appreciated.
