    My PC seems to have similar issues that others have had that have posted. My System Idle processes seem to run at times to 95% CPU. PC seems to be running slower than it use to. Any suggestions? I ran the Hijack This and here are the results

    While I will leave it to a more qualified person to comment on your log, I would advise the "system idle" is a good sign when it's high.

    It means the CPU is not occupied with any process. Mine is 92%-98% at the moment.

    Yeah, System Idle Process usually hovers at the high-90% mark, since the system is in an idle state (ie the CPU isn't doing any processing). It's the computer equivalent of twiddling your thumbs.

    You do have a fair bit on your HJT log though. You might want to have one of the security guys look at it just to be safe. Just click the red triangle in the corner of your original post and ask if you can have the post moved to the Security forum. HijackThis logs are responded to far more quickly there.

    Thread moved to the Security Forum.


    Click here: http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm to get LSP-Fix.
    You may not need it, but go ahead and download (save) it.


    Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall MyWebSearch, WeatherBug and New.Net (NewDotNet).


    If newdotnet will not uninstall, or is not listed there go here: http://www.newdotnet.com/removal.html
    and follow procedure 4 to remove it.

    If you lose your internet connection after running the New.Net Uninstaller, Run the LSP Fix, and click Finish. Don't do anything else!

    That should restore the internet connection.


    Reboot and post another HJT log.
