CPU Running up to 100% Hardware or Software issue?

Recommended Posts

I've been noticing the past few days that my desktop CPU has been running at 100% and bogging down the entire system. I tried dusting whatever little dust I have in the computer, running virus scans using Kaspersky IS 2011, and testing the memory. I don't know why it has been running like this lately. Please help.

I am currently using an I7 processor (no overclocking) and Windows 7 Ultimate.

Here is my Hijack This results. What should I do next?

Unfortunately it seems as though our malware experts have deserted us. I see an issue in your HJT log that needs an expert to help you with. I would suggest joining the Geeks to Go forums and asking for help with this in their Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal section.

All those file missing entries are nothing to be concerned about. It is just a case of you having a 64 bit system and HJT being written for 32 bit systems and hence cannot find the virtual folder used by 64 bit systems for those processes and their files.

Normally I would just say you should post in the HJT logs section, but I see little activity there so for now

I see a leftover from a rogue malware

O2 - BHO: BHO Project - {04eb382a-4b48-4de7-a570-b0307b9b13c7} - (no file)

http://www.systemlookup.com/CLSID/73249-bho_project_dll.html

Which you should fix with hijackthis by running hijackthis, choose perform a scan only, and putting a check by that entry , make sure all browsers are closed and then click fix selected.

Given that entry I would also recommend running MalwareBytes Anti Malware to ensure the rogue is removed.

Vista and Windows 7 users:

1. These tools MUST be run from the executable. (.exe) every time you run them

2. With Admin Rights (Right click, choose "Run as Administrator")

MALWAREBYTES with Pics:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

* Double-click mbam-setup.exeand follow the prompts to install the program.

* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.

* Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.

When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

MBAM.png

* Then click Remove Selected .

* When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location and post the results.

* Note: If you receive a notice that some of the items couldn't be removed, that they have been added to the delete on reboot list, please reboot.

Also "copy/paste" a new HijackThis log file into this thread.

Also that implies you are using Facebook.

let me ask, is this problem associated with a ZYNGA game (Farmville, Cafeworld...) being played in Firefox????

This particular set of running processes associated with a freeze or slowdown (100% CPU usage) is common when Zynga is trying to add a new feature and the script kiddies they employ have made a mistake and left something out of the code and they need to call someone who can actually read code and fix it .

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\plugin-container.exe

Generally this revolves around either the server that hosts your friends and contacts in a game timing out (darn the exact server slips my mind just now). SO if this is so let me know and I will consult my notes on what to do about it. Note that they do this quite a lot and it is to be expected that at least once a week you will keep getting bug reports and freezes and time outs (plugin container not responding) when the data from a secondary server fails to load.
