We have a computer at work that has been working fine all tax season (I work at a tax place) and has just recently started giving problems. I already removed some of the startup programs and it helped a little bit, but theres a bigger problem. When I opened the task manager, there were numerous files named poux0uqu.exe and poux0u~1.exe . These files just keep multiplying and make the CPU usage jump to 100% rendering the computer almost unusable. Also the commit charge steadily goes up when this happens. Anybody that knows what this file is please let me know as well as how to get rid of it becasue I beleive it is whats causing all the trouble

Unknown file names are usually Malware.
Unfortunately we do not provide Malware help for business PC's that's what PC repair shops are for.

Is there a way to get rid of this myself? I usually take care of these kind of things if I can to eliminate the need of a repair shop. The last one I removed was Smart Protection 2012 virus. I had to download four different programs to fix it but its now the fastest computer in the office. and just happens to be the one I am sending this on :)
