Hello, I'm new to this but I have been having this problem for a little while and can not figure out what is causing it. I have a dell 4700, windows xp, pentium 4 with ht, 1 gb ram. I also have Panda anti-virus and spy sweeper on my computer. The problem is every few days a process will open and try to make an out going connection, but panda stops it and asks if I want to allow it. I always say no do not allow. Then it starts to run and my cpu just goes through the roof. I go into task manager and find it running under the processes and click on it and shut it down. I try to find that processes after that and it is just gone. It does not come up with the same names either, it is always different. It always starts with GLB then has like 3 or 4 numbers and/or letters then always ends in .tmp. the 3 or 4 numbers is what is always different. Does anyone have any help or information they can give me on this problem. If there is anything you need from me to help me out please let me know and I will get it. Thank You.
Do these things in this order.. if you wish download all three apps before you run them; post the results in a new thread in Viruses n Nasties forum
===Get CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/ - and put it in a new folder. You should aim to keep this one for general use. I set it from the install checkboxes to only open from the recycle bin. It's neater that way.
Now run Ccleaner from the recycle bin rclick menu using its default settings [if you set up CCleaner as i suggested, rclicking the bin icon should give you the Open CCleaner option...]. Select the Cleaner icon and the Windows tab; press Run Cleaner. Next select the Applications tab and Run Cleaner again.
[For future quick temp file cleaning select the options you wish to use. Note that CCleaner is also a free registry cleaner. Explore all its options, but skip the prefetch folder cleaning option.
