    My PC recently slowed down hella. My internet is fine once I get internet explorer to open but any programs take forever. My CPU usage is always high no matter what is running or not running, as far as I can tell, 90% or above.I went through all the steps like the guy with the slow mouse did in another post i.e. cleanups, defrag, ram enhancement software, virus scan. I even did a netstat check to see if a trojan wasn't being picked up by the virus scans and firewall and there was still a remote connection because that is what it feels like. It started after I began using Remotely Anywhere to d/l some files from my dad's computer but I've since deleted that hoping that would close up any possible port action through that. Any guess to what it might be?

    Welcome :)

    Download and Run HighJackThis.

    When you run the program, click Scan. Then when the log appears, click Save (not fix... yet). Give the log a name and then it will appear in Wordpad. Copy the log and paste it here.

    Rescan and put a check next to each of these then close all browser windows and click "fix checked"

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CMESys] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\CMEII\CMESys.exe"
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ShowBehind] C:\WINDOWS\sbnet\ShowBehind.exe

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\CMEII
    C:\WINDOWS\sbnet\ShowBehind.exe

    Do you play games on the net (as in pc games not online games) through WildTangent?

    If not then this needs to go to:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wcmdmgr] C:\WINDOWS\wt\updater\wcmdmgrl.exe -launch
