Big Problems

Recently my computer started running extremely horribly. I've lost use of task manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing). The temp on my computer has also gone very hot (usually it runs from between 35 and 40 C and now it runs right around the 50 C mark). I've defragged, performed the system clean, removed any spyware found with Ad-aware, and I've also installed security task manager as a means to have some sort of task manager. I am using Mozilla to browse and it works fine, but on the few occasions I need to use Internet Explorer, it runs terribly slow with many freeze ups. Also, another thing I found odd, is that on occasion, my task bar completely disappears.
Here is a list of processes that are running, besides programs which I know I've installed and their threat ratings according to security task manager
LexBce Service - very low, no number given
LEXPPS.exe - very low, no number given
< mainsafe.exe > - 92
zdfzhxo.exe - 72
sysmon (appears twice) - 52 on each instance
CMSystem.exe - 62
New.net domains - 52
taskmge.exe - 36
bho module - 76
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running.

Also make sure you are using the the latest version (1.99.1) of HijackThis and it's installed in it's own folder on the root drive. (C:\HJT)


Once you complete those steps...download hijackthis...do a scan...save the log and post it here.

Hello lightning716 and welcome to TSF,

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will not have any of browsers open while you are fixing this. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. Again, you should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link doesn't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Please download Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/.

1. Install Ewido Security Suite.
2. When installing, under 'Additional Options' uncheck:
* Install background guard
* Install scan via context menu
3. Launch Ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop, double click it.
4. The program will now open to the main screen.
5. When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get a warning 'Database could not be found!'. Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
6. You will need to update Ewido to the latest definition files.
* On the left hand side of the main screen click update.

Umm... yeah

for some reason, it's beyond me, no matter if I press F8 once or 400 times before the windows comes up, my computer will not reboot in safe mode. I don't know why because I've done it before with this computer. I'm stumped.
