    Default Rootkit scan results

    Hi all, was just wondering if anyone would mind having a quick look at these results please? I guess they seem legit, but what would I know!

    Hello j3ff3,

    Those entries do not look bad, they are diagnostic files.

    Yes.

    How is your computer running?

    Best regards.

    Yes.

    thanks a lot!

    yeah, at times my pc is running pretty poorly.

    over time it goes from 50% ram usage to 85 -95% (4gig). and closing apps then doesn't help. firefox tends to be the most resource hungry at around 400k, with svchost at 250k or so, but when the problem occurs svchost eats the rest of the memory (i can't remember the exact amount).

    i'm guessing it's a memory leak or something? i've no real clue!

    thanks again,

    j3ff

    Hi j3ff3,

    Firefox is a drainer.

    What is the operating system and do you have other security software installed?

    Best regards.

    yeah, i know, but I can leave my PC on with everything running and come back a few hours later to find it has ground to a halt! Running CCleaner gets me a bit of memory back, as does closing everything, but only to about 85% (and it's still pretty unresponsive). This doesn't happen that often, maybe twice a week or so.

    as for programs, I just use security essentials and spybot, with win patrol and noscript. Oh and I use HouseCall every so often. Maybe MSE isn't enough, but I've used Kaspersky and Comodo too, and neither seemed really more effective. One potential gap in security could be that I rely on Win7 's firewall (and the router)?

    Thanks

    Hello j3ff3,

    Would you like someone to check out the system, if so I will link you to the malware removal forum FAQ.

    If the machine appears to be clean your helper can direct you to a site where volunteer techies help with all kinds of issues unrelated to malware.
