1.) Did you get a message stating it found some errors and was unable to fix them?
Or it found errors and successfully repaired them?
Or did it say no integrity issues were found?

Try copying the log from outside the location it is in to your desktop.



2.) -Uninstall all instances of the following software under control panel-uninstall a program.

-Java - Huge security risk.
-Adobe reader - not necessary anymore. Your web browser can open pdf files.
-Driver finder -spyware program-not trusted
-zipppener - a better alternative (clean and crap free) is 7zip which is found here: 7-Zip
-pc faster baidu security -bloatware-junkware

Confirm you have done these steps. We will then move on to removing the malware.

**Follow the below step by step. Do not skip anything. If you are unsure on something, ask**


1.) Ok, restart the pc and then run sfc scan again.

See if this time it determines that no integrity violations were found. If it does, peachy. Everything is good. If not, we will have to look into somehow uploading that log. (Won't be hard if we need to. )

2.) Here is another step to do once you finished the above:

Run herdprotects scan again. I advise you to remove the following items, I will give you the full name and log entry. Try and search up and down the list for it. I know its long, so take your time. Again, only remove what I advise.

How to remove with herdprotect:

Click the entry, click action-remove.

You have a bitcoin miner on your pc. So This is why your cpu usage was so high.

Your pc was being used to mine bitcoins.

what are bitcoins you ask?
See here: Bitcoin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The application cgminer-nogpu.exe has been detected as a malicious Bitcoin miner. Bitcoin-mining malware is designed to force computers to generate Bitcoins for cybercriminals' use and consumes computing power. - Read more at Malware scan of cgminer-nogpu.exe f2c2ba3bdb1f2e828c27d0c65f5cf9742b776690 - herdProtect


For a complete clean, I recommend removing these nasties that you have in your downloads folder:

-c:\users\rox\downloads\sysplayer_sysds_setup.exe
-c:\users\rox\downloads\installer_hide_ip_platinum_3_0_6_6_arabic.exe
-c:\users\rox\downloads\isobuster_all_lang.exe
-c:\users\rox\downloads\imf-setup.exe
-c:\users\rox\downloads\cheatengine62.exe

Re-read post 23 above multiple times. Make sure you do not miss a single thing. You may consider printing it out to follow each step.

When and only when you are done with post 23, post a new herdprotect scan log. I want to make sure you are all cleaned up.

You didn't post a new log so I do not know if you are clean or not.

I can look into your new thread.
