CPU grinding to a halt :(

Unread postby wreakinhavok » August 11th, 2009, 10:56 am

Been having a fair few problems with my Dell Desktop lately.

Alot of AVG closure reports have been popping up on windows start up - variations of avgnsx.exe, and they continue to pop up, 6 or 7 on screen at times.

Firefox runs very very slowly, tends to be part of the reason the whole system eventually grinds to a halt.

Everything freezes but I can still move the mouse but not click on anything/do anything with it.

The CPU seems to be using 100% of it's resources at times, and the noise coming from inside the tower unit sounds as if it is working over time.

Here is my logfile....

Hi wreakinhavok,

Click once on the service to highlight it.
Right-Click on the service. Click on Properties
Select the General tab.

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
