# CLOSED I think my Computer may be infected...

## Recommended Posts

Yesterday, while I was browsing on the Internet my cpu usage went to 100%, and it stays there.

The Resource Monitor showed many dllhost.exe COM Surrogate running. The computer slows to a stand still.

I have attempted to find what ever is causing it, but have failed to figure it out.

The only way I can "fix" this is to open the resource monitor, click on the process and Suspend it. If I kill the process, it just restarts, and it appears to spin off additional dllhost.exe COM Surrogate's.

I do not know if a virus or malware has a hold. Find enclosed:

the results of the EMSIsoft full scan

the FarBar Recovery Scan tool results

a screen shot of my Resource Monitor

Also, the results of two of the tools I ran while trying to fix this.

Can you help?

Thank-you,

Keith L Terrill

Run FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.

If the tool needed a restart please make sure you let the system to restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.

I have both IE and Opera browsers running. Only one dllhost.exe COM Surrogate is running. The CPU is running light/low.

It appears to have fixed the problem.

Question? What happened, if you know? and how did it get past my EMSIsoft antimalware?

Thank you

Keith

Looks like a script was be loaded and executed prior to EAM starting, which would allow it to evade detection by EAM.

Unless you are having problems, it is time to do the final steps.

Delete the following from your Desktop: (If they exist)

Emsisoft Emergency Kit.lnk

FRST.exe

FRST64.exe

Anything else I had you use

Delete the following folders: (If they exist)

C:\EEK

C:\FRST

Empty the Recycle Bin

• UnZip CCleaner Portable to a folder on your Desktop named CCleaner
Run CCleaner
• Open the CCleaner Folder on your Desktop and double click CCleaner.exe (32-bit) or CCleaner64.exe (64-bit)
• The following should be selected by default, if not, please select:

• Click and choose
• Uncheck
• Then go back to and click to run it.
• Exit CCleaner.
Turn off System restore to flush all your restore points then turn system restore back on. See How To Enable and Disable System Restore.

You can delete and uninstall any programs I had you download, that you do not wish to keep on the system.

Run Windows Update and update your Windows Operating System.

Install and run the Secunia Personal Software Inspector, this will inspect your system for software that is out-of-date and in need of updating. Update anything program/application detected as being out-dated.

That should take care of everything.

Safe Surfing!
