PING.EXE running and taking processor power.

Unread postby Aneth » November 12th, 2011, 2:31 pm

Hi there!

I seem to be infested by some malware that runs a PING.EXE stealing all processor power from the computer. If i go to the task manager and manually shut it off the computer goes blue screen and shuts down, on the first reboot after shutting down by itself it gets a new blue screen saying something like "script to page in no script area" - then resets again, then starts again fine.

Hi Aneth,

The installed version of Windows Vista (SP1) on your computer is no longer supported and consequently this forum will be unable to assist you with your malware issues. May I draw your attention to the following post:
