Preferred Solution: Malware Removal Help Needed - Explorer taking CPU memory

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I run windows XP and for some reason my computer has been running slow at times. I ctrl+alt+del and check active processes to see if one is clogging resources and I noticed that explorer.exe is taking up 87k of memory.

When it does this it really can slow down my comp. Any suggestions for why it is doing this and/or if it is actually SUPPOSED to be doing this?

Thanks.

A:Explorer.EXE is taking up massive amounts of memory

Please run the following:
Please download the appropriate version of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST.exe) from here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/dl/81/ (for 32bit systems)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/dl/82/ (for 64bit systems)
save it to your desktop.Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
NEXT
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR) from the following link and save it to your desktop.
http://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbar
Next, exit Malwarebytes Anti-Malware ( MBAM ) if it is running. You can do so via the notification area icon near the clock. Right click on the MBAM icon and select Exit.
Next...Double click on the MBAR file you downloaded.
Approve the UAC prompt in Vista and newer operating systems.
Click OK on the next screen, to allow the package to extract the contents of the file to it's own folder, mbar.
By default, this will be on your desktop, though you can choose another location if you wish. We advise using the default location for simplicity.
mbar.exe will launch automatically. On some systems, this may take a few extra seconds. Please be patient and wait for the program to open.
After reading the Introduction, click 'Next' if you agree.
On the Update Database screen, click on the 'Update' button.
Once you see 'Success: Database was successfully updated' click on 'Next'.
Click the 'Scan' button.
A.With some infections, you may see two messages boxes.
1.'Could not load protection driver'. Click 'OK'.
2.'Could not load DDA driver'. Click 'Yes' to this message, to allow the driver to load after a restart. Allow the computer to restart. Continue with the rest of these instructions.
If malware is found, do NOT press the Cleanup button when the scan completes. Click EXIT.
Then, please send the following logs as attachments to your reply. These logs are located in the mbar folder on your desktop where the tool extracted itself to.
mbar-log-2014-xx-xx(xx-xx-xx).txt (where xx-xx(xx-xx-xx) is the date and time of the scan)

So the other thread was no help, so I started this one. When I start up my computer and after its loaded (in normal and clean boot) an explorer.exe shows up and starts rapidly ballooning up over the 2 million bits mark, making my computer really slow.

I've cleaned with Comodo, Malwarebytes pro, and Kaspersky bootkit cleaner. This only happens when my computer is connected to the internet. The process has the path C:/Windows/explorer.exe but it shows up with no user in the task manager and when I try to end the task it gives me a message saying "access is denied. However, when I end it through the performance monitor it will let me end it, but a new one always pops back up in its place.

I've been googling for weeks trying to fix this and still no luck, please help.

A:Two explorer.exe, one taking up to 3 gigs system memory

Google select which programs run at startup for your OS. There should be a way to block any unwanted applications from starting up. You might want to try and see if this simple method would work.

A:Multiple Windows explorer (.exe) Taking Up Memory and CPU

Hi,
From what I read it sounds like you have gotten another infection. It also sounds like it will take more than the usual tools to get it identified and removed.
I'll flag this for a moderator to move it so you can get the help you need.
Stay well and surf safe

Does this happen to someone else also I usually have about half dozen IE windows opened at anytime I might start a few more and then close a couples But eventually I notice one or two if the IE processes start to use up several hundred MB ram up to eventually GB ram When one of the IE processes hit the GB ram mark it's inevitable that one of the IE windows then stop functioning as clicking the link disable screensaver lot up taking also Internet a memory, explorer of you don't get any page loading If i then shut down that process then everything works again Once in a while i notice Internet explorer taking up a lot of memory, also disable screensaver that one of the IE process would reach high ram usage of hundred MB ram and the screen saver would stop coming on as well as the power setting for turning off screen would be disabled This is even if there's no IE process running a video at that time It's possible that i might have open IE to say view a video before but I know i close that IE process and yet this still happens If i go and shut down all the IE processes that seem to take a lot of mem then screen saver comes on again Any fix for this I imagine that this also affects other browsers as well

My security program warned me that Internet Explorer is taking high CPU and Memory Usage. This is a new Dell Inspiron One2320, I have used it just one week. A support person from Norton tried to correct the problem by accessing my computer and going through
all the steps he could think of for well over an hour. It didn't work, but he says he suspects that there are some errors in the Internet explorer 9. I don't know what to do. I just bought this computer and now I'm afraid that all the memory is going
to get eaten up. Please help me. I have windows 7 Home Premium.

A:Internet Explorer Taking High CPU and Memory Usage on new computer.

Hi,
Please test the Internet Explorer under following situations.
1. Use Internet Explorer in Safe Mode with networking.
2. Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (with no add-ons)
3. Go to Internet Option -> Advance tab -> select the first option "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering"

A little history Several days ago I was doing some routine maintenance on my wife s comp Win XP Home o s I ran Spybot and found that she was infected with a variant of Cool Web Search and a keylogger called quot Hellz Little Spy quot I got rid of these using the Spybot removal For whatever reason this caused to me to get stuck in a logon logoff quot Welcome quot screen loop I have used the System Restore disks that I had gotten from HP and did a sys restore This caused me to have to reinstall Service Pack along with all Help Needed Malware Removal the related required updates from MS etc I found that I STILL have the Cool Web Search and the Keylogger when I scanned with Spybot I tried a CW Search remover - it scanned the system and said that CW Search was not present even though Spybot says that it is I also tried to locate the Keylogger files using Malware Removal Help Needed search for both the and versions of this parasite the search revealed nothing Spybot says that I still have it I have an idea that both of these reinstall even after removing them with Spybot I d like to get rid of them both for once and for all - how do I go about it Malware Removal Help Needed nbsp

A:Malware Removal Help Needed

First, a little history. 3 days ago, I was doing routine maintenance on my wifes XP-Home comp. She doesn't do it, so I have to. While running Spybot S & D, I discovered that she had 2 serious malware issues - a keylogger called "Hellz Little Spy" and also "CoolWWWSearch.hjt". Of course, I got rid of them. Upon rebooting, I was stuck in a logon/logoff loop for which nothing I did would remedy. I did try the one suggested fix, which was entering the recovery console, doing a "CD System32" then a "Copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe" This accomplished nothing, same problem. There was also a site which offered a fix using something called "BartPE" but since I do not have the XP Home installation disk, this did me no good.
I was able to obtain the full 10 CD set of disks from HP for a System Restore. Rather than formatting and doing a clean reinstall, I used the other option, which was to reinstall the files as they came from the factory (I think these are on the D partition). So, reluctantly, I did the sys restore, reinstalled SP2, did all the required critical updates and security updates from MS, etc. etc. - all of this took considerable time.
When this was all done, I found that I STILL had the same 2 malware issues, despite the fact that Spybot said that the June 25 update would take care of the Hellz Little Spy problem. I always update and immunize when I run Spybot.
Bottom line to this rather long post is that I am now AGAIN stuck in the same logon/logoff loop......I am unable to get into "SAFE" mode to do anything. I believe that when the keylogger is removed, it causes the logon/logoff issue.....Therefore, prior to me doing the lenghtly sys restore again, I have a couple questions:
1. Does anyone have any ideas how I can get around the logon/logoff loop without having the ability to enter SAFE mode?????
2. How do I get rid of these 2 pieces of Malware for once and for all?? And, once I do get rid of them, how do I prevent the same thing from happening again?? I use Spybot and Spyware Blaster religiously, and update things weekly, also scan weekly (if not more) using my AV (NOD32).

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This type of infection allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information, and download and execute files without your knowledge.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Howdy there and welcome to TSF Forums

I'm Steve and I will be helping you thoughout this fix.

Before beginning the fix, read this post completely. If there's anything that you do not understand, kindly ask your questions before proceeding. It is IMPORTANT that you don't miss a step. Please perform everything in the correct order/sequence.

Please Subscribe to this Thread to get immediate notification of replies as soon as they are posted. To do this click Thread Tools, then click Subscribe to this Thread. Make sure it is set to Instant notification by email, then click Add Subscription

Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within three days from this initial post then thread will be closed.

We need to disable your TeaTimer as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.

1) Run Spybot-S&D
2) Go to the Mode menu, and make sure "Advanced Mode" is selected
3) On the left hand side, choose Tools -> Resident
4) Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts
5) Restart your computer.

After all of the fixes are complete it is very important that you enable TeaTimer again, I will let you know when it is safe to do so.

Download ResetTeaTimer.bat by right-clicking on the link, and choosing Save As.

* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click ResetTeaTimer.zip
* Double-click ResetTeaTimer.bat and click Run to remove all entries set by TeaTimer.

A Tutorial for Tea Timer can be found here -> http://russelltexas.com/malware/teatimer.htm

Please scan with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/comb...o-use-combofix

* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.
Stay with the topic until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
Instructions that I give are for your system only!
Please do not run any tools until requested ! The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
Please perform all steps in the order received. If you can't understand something don't hesitate to ask.
Again I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so. I will not help you if you do not follow my instructions.
 
 
If the system has been used after topic creation time we need to take a look at fresh logs.
Please download the latest version of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Georgi

My laptop is infected with TubeHelper malware. It got installed as a BHO when installing Dream mkv converter I downloaded from CNET (I guess shame on me for taking defaults blindly during installation just because I implicitly trusted the s/w downloaded from CNET.)
 
Now - I can not use YouTube anymore - videos don't play. This BHO pushes R Rated ads. Mouse over hyperlinks on legit webpages result in popup-type windows with ads. Logging onto any corporate website results in a popup window promoting deals specially designed for that company. This is what I noticed in just a few minutes. There may be more invisible (an more sinister) stuff going on.
 
This shows up as a BHO in IE, but can not disable it because it disables the disable option.
 
Surprisingly, I don't find much info when I google "TubeHelper" or "Tube Helper".
 
Help please!!
 
Running Windows 7 current on all updates.

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! Place combofix.exe on your Desktop
[*]Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with ComboFix.
[*]Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
[*]As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.

Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.





The Windows recovery console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode that allows us to help you in the case that your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal.

Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement.

ComboFix will now automatically install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console onto your computer, which will show up as a new option when booting up your computer. Do not select the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console option when you start your computer unless requested to by a helper.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see a message that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.



Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
[*]Your desktop may go blank. This is normal. It will return when ComboFix is done. ComboFix may reboot your machine. This is normal.
[*] When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within three days this thread will be closed.

A:Encrypted files (.ecc), malware removal help needed

Greetings sportsfroma2 and to BleepingComputer's Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.My name is Oh My! and I am here to help you! Now that we are "friends" please call me Gary.If you would allow me to call you by your first name I would prefer to do that. ===================================================Ground Rules:First, I would like to inform you that most of us here at Bleeping Computer offer our expert assistance out of the goodness of our hearts. Please try to match our commitment to you with your patience toward us. If this was easy we would never have met. Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I will provide for you while we work on your computer together. I need to be certain about the state of your computer in order to provide appropriate and effective steps for you to take. Most often "well intentioned" (and usually panic driven!) independent efforts can make things much worse for both of us. If at any point you would prefer to take your own steps please let me know, I will not be offended. I would be happy to focus on the many others who are waiting in line for assistance.Please perform all steps in the order they are listed in each set of instructions. Some steps may be a bit complicated. If things are not clear, be sure to stop and let me know. We need to work on this together with confidence.Please copy and paste all logs into your post unless directed otherwise. Please do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems simply stop and tell me.When you post your reply, use the button instead.In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see the button. Click on this then choose Immediate E-Mail notification and then Proceed and you will be sent an email once I have posted a response.If you do not reply to your topic after 5 days we assume it has been abandoned and I will close it.When your computer is clean I will alert you of such. I will also provide for you detailed information about how you can combat future infections.I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so.Now let's get started ===================================================Now that I am assisting you, you can expect that I will be very responsive to your situation. If you are able, I would request you check this thread at least once per day so that we can try to resolve your issues effectively and efficiently. If you are going to be delayed please be considerate and post that information so that I know you are still with me. Unfortunately, there are many people waiting to be assisted and not enough of us at BleepingComputer to go around. I appreciate your understanding and diligence.Thank you for your patience thus far. I have some steps for you to take but unfortunately I must first advise you that your files have been encrypted by the TeslaCrypt Ransomware and we will not be able to decrypt your files here. In addition, I would like to inform you of this malware's BackDoor Component.===================================================BACKDOOR WARNING!--------------------One or more of the identified infections is a Backdoor Trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable. Please let me know if you have already noticed evidences of financial institution irregularities. Those accounts should be monitored from this point forward.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infect... Read more

A:Malware Removal Help Needed - deleting ie, music & pictures

Hello there, Masterk3y! Welcome to TSF.

I am looking over your logs and will get back to you as soon as I can. In the meantime, could you please describe in more detail the problems you have been having with your computer?

Also, if you have not done so already, you may wish to subscribe to this thread to get immediate notification of replies as soon as they are posted. To do this click Thread Tools, then click Subscribe to this Thread. Make sure it is set to Instant Notification, then click Subscribe.

To help make this fix go as smoothly as possible, please do not run any scans, use any tools, or install/uninstall any applications unless requested.

Even if your symptoms seem to disappear at some point during this fix, please stay with me until I confirm the infection is gone. An infection could still be present on your system even if there are no obvious signs.

Please be patient with me during the course of this fix, as it will likely require multiple steps to completely remove your infection.

During this process, read each of my posts carefully before you continue. If you have any questions about any of the instructions I give you, please ask them before you begin.

Also please note that this forum is very busy; if I don't hear back from you within three days, this thread will be closed.

A:Memory/Sound Degradation AFTER Malware Removal

Since Malwarebytes was successful in removing the malware, I registered it and had in running in the background. I noticed it would occassionally block websites that I deemed safe so I right clicked on the Malwarebytes icon and unchecked the website blocking feature. Forgeting to turn it back on, I begin running the system as usual and immediatley noticed pages loading quicker, no audio distortion and dload speeds back to normal. I turned it back on, to be sure, and as suspected the distortion started. So that definately was the issue in this case. Thanks to all who took a look at this.

I had several malware infection on my machine, and a HJT Senior classman helped me to remove them. Following disinfecting of the machine, my Internet Explorer (6) will not fire up. I found another IE application in a strange folder that I think the malware was using to access the internet. I have tried to uninstall the current IE, and then re=-install it, and I have tried to install IE7 and IE8 with no luck. Any guidance on how to get control of my IE would help.

Thx, Pat

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 7 and Macafee security. Got infected with Thinkpoint malware. Followed all the instructions to download Malwarebytes to remove the virus. Seemed to work. A few days later, my internet explorer won't connect to my home's wireless router. My older laptop running XP connects just fine. Weird thing is, I can connect to my school e-mail account (Office Outlook web access) and my gradebook on our district's server, but nothing else connects (yahoo, google, ancestry, etc.)

A:Lost internet explorer after malware removal

Malware will sometimes change proxy settings that will prevent you from connecting to the internet. Have a look at that. You also may want to post in Am I Infected just to be sure that you are clean.

I took a look at my TaskMan because my Core 0 was at 100%, and I just exited a flash game.

I had 4 IE windows open, and a total of 4 tabs. One iexplore.exe was using over 400,000K. I clicked on the Applications tab, right clicked on each App, and selected Go To Process. None took me to the iexplore.exe. NOW, I have 2 more tabs open [both 7forums] and the memory usage is over 873,000K

I am currently on my second attempt on uploading a Zip of the .DMP of that IE process, and it doesn't look good. Nope.

I will try uploading it later, but until then, can somebody walk me through what I need to do to read this, as well as help me understand what it says [if it's cryptic]

For the record, CPU usage dropped down to almost 0

Hello everyone!

I've been having this problem for approximately a month.
This particular file, named svchost.exe (size: 942KB), located in C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Temp is giving me some bad times.

Everytime I log in my Windows account, this file starts executing itself, and is shown on Task Manager as the image proves it.

The most straightforward solution would be to delete this file permanently.
When I do that, it reappears after rebooting or logging out and then logging in.

I've tried deleting the whole content of the specified folder above, and yet it still shows up again, aswell as all the other "temporary" files.

I asked around, before posting this problem here, and one of the possible reasons could be a malfunctioning windows update.

The goal is to get rid of this nasty file permanently.
Can I count on your help?


Thank you for your time,
-Razraal

A:Resurging svchost.exe*32 TempFile taking needed CPU runtime

The svchost.exe process is vital for w7 to operate. If you succeed in deleting it the system will be bricked.
The svchost.exe is an internal kind of OS that w7 uses to run its own processes. I have from 11-17 or more instances of it running. This particular one may be caused by a program you installed a month ago.

Hello. While I was uninstalling a printer from my computer, I had to restart my computer to completely remove it. Since then, my computer has been slow. Everything loads longer than usual. I already tried a number of scans for infections. My browser is especially affected, as I didn't close it before restarting, and a video was playing while it restarted. I already tried re-installing it too.
 
The only thing I find that is abnormal is that svchost.exe is taking up more memory than usual in the task manager.

I'm running XP pro and the task manager shows each program and service to be taking up what seems to be double or more what amount of memory it usually takes up. My system usually boots up using 200 or less MB of memory; now it is about 600 when it starts up. However, there doesn't seem to be any performance problems like when it usually goes over 512. How do I fix this?

A:Programs taking up too much memory

Go to start,run and type msconfig and enter.

Go to the startup tab and see what is running when windows starts. Uncheck any unneeded items. See if this helps.

Also a good idea to do a spyware/virus scan.

Sometimes when I'm using Firefox, the amount of memory it takes up essentially "spikes," I guess you could say. This becomes apparent to me when I start experiencing a lag between when I type, and when the characters show up on my screen (ONLY when typing into Firefox, though -- not other applications). I then verify this when I do ctrl alt delete and look at the mem usages. Sure enough, Firefox is way higher than it should be. A few times, my anti-virus programs even warns me about it. When I click on "end process," and then restart Firefox, it's usually okay again, but it's still very annoying to have to do so. Does anyone know why this may be happening and any way to prevent it? Thanks.

A:Firefox Taking Up Too Much Memory

Hello JSS10

It is a known fact that Firefox uses a lot more memory than Chrome or some other browsers. But, this can unusually spike due to specific add-ons that are installed along with Firefox. See if the high usage reduces after disabling all add-ons. Enable them one by one to see if you can find which one is causing the problem.

I am running windows vista and also am not able to update for another reason i assume, related to this issue.

My question is, which service(s) specifically are the ones that need to be stopped?

Thanks in advance.

Are you running a 32-bit or 64-bit system? Go to Control Panel>System and it should tell you.

Hello.

I have multiple svchost processes running, but one's taking up a huge amount of memory. The problem is that this one process has multiple services running and I don't know which one(s) I have to do something to in order to fix the problem. It's currently running:

Windows Audio
Background Intelligent Transfer Service
Cryptographic Services
DHCP Client
Error Reporting Services
COM+ Event System
Fast User Switching Compatibility
Help and Support

Workstation
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness (NLA)
Remote Access Connection Manager
Task Scheduler
Secondary Logon
System Event Notification
Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing
Shell Hardware Detection
System Restore Service
Telephony

Windows Management Instrumentation

At first, I thought the problem was being caused by Automatic Updates so I disabled that and it seemed to run fine for a while. However, with these services, it's running between 94-99 CPU and over 600MB memory usage. Please help.

Typically my physical memory runs in the 30-35% range
A moment ago I realized my comp was running slow opening a program. So I ctl+alt+del & saw my memory was at 80%
I closed my browser & other running programs then ran MBAM & deleted the malicious item it listed
I restarted my comp & I again hit ctl+alt+del & it was running at the normal 32%. But as I let it sit for a few mins, the memory began to steadily climb. Here's a screenshot of my task manager showing my memory
 

 
It seems to have leveled off for now at ~50%, but that's still noticeably higher than what it typically runs at & the comp is still running slower than normal as a result

Hi as of recent the problem up lot taking of svchost.exe memory. a I am experiencing is that the process called svchost exe is using up a lot of memory This problem started yesterday and the last thing I remember doing is surfing the web with google chrome and then chrome's pop-up blocker blocked a pop-up window I had chrome's adblock extension enabled as well I'm not sure if that pop-up window in chrome had anything to do with triggering the svchost procress though I know for a fact that I had a similar problem before with svchost but then it went away after about days Assistance would be appreciated in helping me solve this problem Thank you Note I notice that when I restart the computer the svchost process decreases memory usage gradually then increases it I believe the second instance of svchost there are multiple ones is the one that's causing the svchost.exe taking up a lot of memory. problem It's the one that starts up at around K This instance of svchost always increases to a maximum of around K Here's my dds log DDS Ver - - - NTFS AMD Internet Explorer BrowserJavaVersion Run by Yovanny at on - - Microsoft Windows Home Premium GMT - AV ESET NOD Antivirus Disabled Updated FAE- -A - DB- B E DFA SP Windows svchost.exe taking up a lot of memory.

Ok, a few days ago I was playing Conquer Online and it just randomly started freezing. It would freeze for a second, then play normally for a second, and then repeat until I closed it. Now, I looked into what was causing the problem and form what I found, I went to the Task Manager and looked at the process tab to see the memory usage.

Here is what I came across:





Whenever I close one process, the memory taken from that process gets filled by another. It is like it is staying at the top of my memory preventing me from doing anything. Anyideas on what could be wrong?

A:Process Taking Up Memory

Firefox is suxking up your memory, which is normal, IE8 does that too. Can you download Process Explorer and see what svchost processes take up a lot of RAM?

MsMpEng.exe(windows defender) has taken up lots of my computer's ram and cpu usage and is making my computer really slow
But when I try to open windows defender it says that windows defender has been disabled even though MsMpEng is running. Trying to turn on windows defender in order to disable it does not seem to work as when I click on the button to turn windows defender on it just freezes and stops responding
is there any way to externally disable windows defender?

A:MsMpEng.exe taking up too much memory

See if this will work for you

Click on the start button click on All Programs locate Microsoft Security Essentials, click on the "Settings" tab. Select "Excluded files and locations"
Browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Security Client\MsMpEng.exe", click on Ok and press Add button to add the file to your list of excluded files and locations. Press Save changes button.



   Note
In Windows 7 x64 . You will have two Program Files folders . Program Files is where 64-bit applications install to and Program Files (x86) yes you guessed it 32-but applications install to .

Its been week i got my new gaming laptop it had partition C drive (OS) more taking drive C memory and D drive my problem is with the C drive containing C drive (OS) taking more memory OS i want to keep it free from any major software and memory for smooth running of my games MY C drive C drive (OS) taking more memory total space is GB after updates and one single game installed Diablo III and no other heavy software it was taking GB of memory GB free suddenly since last days my c drive used memory shoots off to more the i deleted my restore point and got some GB free but its still more then half of the memory I really cant figure out why and how it happened Is the system restore point taking the space can i make default save location of system restore files to D drive Installing software like D Max CS Autocad in D drive will effect the running of these programs Please anyone can guide me through this m not a computer expert but i understand the basic of it Regards

A:C drive (OS) taking more memory

I'm not a computer expert, either.

First thing I'd ask that you do is provide your system specs. At the top of any page click on "User CP" and then in the left column click on "Edit System Spec". If you don't know all of the info a free tool called Speccy can help.

Speccy - System Information - Free Download

The next thing is to provide a screenshot of your Disk Management. This will give a better idea of how your hard drive is set up. Please make sure you maximize the Disk Managment screen before uploading the screenshot

How To Access Disk Management in Windows 7

Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Not trying to be critical but just to make sure we're talking about the same thing, memory isn't the same as free (or unused) disk space. If I'm understanding things, your C: partition has/had a total of 119GB of free space. The OS, Windows updates, restore points, and Diablo III were installed taking up 55GB leaving 64GB of remaining free space on C: partition. Then for no apparent reason, "c drive used memory shoots off to more the 75 %." Is that 75% of the original 119GB or 75% of the 64GB? That screenshot of Disk Management will be really helpful.
