Hi all,


I hope someone can help. I've been all over the net trying to find a fix for this. At random times (usually in the evening to early morning) both my processors (Dell Inspiron E1505 core 2 duo) will max out at 100% usage (noticed with a sidebar gadget). When checking with the task manager there can be a few different culprits.

It varies between these three:

- Taskmgr
- Audiodg
- Svchost

I found a thread somewhere showing how to fix the Audiodg issue by disabling advance sound options. Since I did that, Audiodg has been cool.

I found another thread somewhere that listed the following fix for a problem:
"Run all these commands in a command prompt one after the other
regsvr32 MSXML3.dll
regsvr32 WUAUENG1.dll
regsvr32 WUAPI.DLL
regsvr32 WUAUENG.DLL
regsvr32 WUAUENG1.DLL
regsvr32 ATL.DLL
regsvr32 WUCLTUI.DLL
regsvr32 WUPS.DLL
regsvr32 WUPS2.DLL
regsvr32 WUWEB.DLL
net stop WuAuServ
rename %windir%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution_buggy
net start WuAuServ "
So I did that, but a few of those commands couldn't find the dll (the above seems to be for XP, so maybe that is why). And since doing that, now at start up my computer will go to 100% cpus for 3 minutes. So I would like to undo the above somehow.

That's as far as I have gotten with solving this issue. Please anyone help if you can. Thanks!! Here is the Hijackthis log:

I find nothing wrong with your HijackThis log.

Please re-open HijackThis and click on Do a system scan only. Locate the following entries and place a check against them.


O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Sidebar] C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe /autoRun
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-19\..\Run: [Sidebar] %ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\Sidebar.exe /detectMem (User 'LOCAL SERVICE')
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-19\..\Run: [WindowsWelcomeCenter] rundll32.exe oobefldr.dll,ShowWelcomeCenter (User 'LOCAL SERVICE')
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-20\..\Run: [Sidebar] %ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\Sidebar.exe /detectMem (User 'NETWORK SERVICE')

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

Please post this log in your reply.

Thanks for the reply! Doing the above now. Quick question: After putting the check next to the entries in hijackthis, should I also "Fix Checked"?

0

Ok. I just went ahead and did "fix checked" for hijackthis. And here is the log file for malwarebytes:

Ah, sorry. Yes you must click Fix Checked.
I was in a hurry but I picked up your log on the way.

How is your computer now?

0

Thanks for the reply. Well, no problems yet, but it's a random and periodic problem. Hopefully it helps though. One thing is that now my sidebar is gone. Do you think the sidebar itself was causing this problem?

A friend of mine said that the laptop may be overheating, and somehow that causes the CPUs to max out. That seems unlikely to me.

0

No, it's because it's been fixed in HijackThis.

Just copy paste this into notepad and then select File > Save as... and save it as Sidebar.reg

Under Save as type, select, All file(*.*).

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN]
"Sidebar"="C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe /autoRun"

Save it in your desktop and double click on it and merge it with the registry.
I added this in the fix by mistake, forgive me.

0

Hi! Thanks. I got the sidebar back running with your .reg merge.

Bad news is that the problem is still there. It happened before I put the sidebar back. Any other ideas? :-(

Could this actually be from the laptop overheating?

0

Could this actually be from the laptop overheating?

I'll give it one more try before I answer that question.

Please download Combofix by sUbs and save it to your Desktop.

  • Now physically disconnect from the internet and STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields)
  • Click Start and choose Run. Then copy the entire content of the following quotebox and paste it into the run box.
    "%userprofile%\desktop\ComboFix.exe" /KillAll
  • Click OK and this will start ComboFix.
  • When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log to a Notepad File to post in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log.

    Note:
    Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

  • After you have saved the logs, restart your system to re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix.
  • Reconnect to the internet
  • Post the following logs/Reports:

  • ComboFix.txt
  • Fresh HijackThis log run after all the other tools have performed their cleanup.

Also, please include an MBAM scan result in a seperate post.

Ok. Here is Combo log:
