Windows 7

Ran Combofix which produced, removed or changed a long list.
To my surprise everything seems to be functioning afterwards.
Registercleaners like this or any are extremely risky.
The restore option failed for unknown reasons, perhaps I forgot something?
No problem, because I always keep some real complete backups with Acronis,
I never rely on system-restore since it's to vulnerable for viruses who may remove or disable the backup.
Besides it won't restore everything and screws itself in time.
Switched it also off since it builds up a massive rather useless file.

It's to early to cry Eureka, but until now the high CPU didn't appear again.
Keeping thumbs up

The problem didn't appear for several days now, so I think it's solved.
Thanks for your help.
