Weird CPU usage problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Here are some attachments to show what's going on.


As you can see I have these 2 rundll programs running, using all of my computer. If I close them, they re-open. Also, whenever I open a program and then close it, as in screenshot 2 where paint is displayed as running but actually isn't, it uses a ton of resources. The same thing even would happen if I closed task manager. Any help?

Hi StevieD

Description:
rundll32.exe is a process which executes DLL's an places their libraries into the memory, so they can be used more efficiently by applications.This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

original location of this file is C:\\Windows\\System32

If you have installed service pack also here you will find him:
C:\\Windows\\ServicePackFiles\\i386
C:\\$NtServicePackUninstall$\\

In other cases is it a virus.

Best solution will be if you will send log from Hijackthis.

>click here for download HijackThis<
Put HJT in a permanent folder. Here's how to make the folder:
Click My Computer, then C:\\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" . Now you have C:\\HJT\\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.
Push - Do a systemscan and save a logfile - button
and Highlight the Entire Log by pressing Ctrl+A and Copy it. Post whole log here...

Please don´t run Hijackthis from Temp folder or Desktop!!!Pernament folder is recomended for backup file from Hijackthis!!!

Have you ran a virus scan yet? I would recommend it. Boot into safe mode first.

Hey thanks,

Also, how do I boot into safe mode when it doesn't force me to choose?

Reboot your computer and keep pressing F8. Make sure there's no CD or DVD in your drive first. Your window will load to a black screen with options.

You'll see:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

Choose the regular one. I don't clearly remember. Just don't choose Command Prompt.

EDIT: Got to go to practice now. Good luck!
