    1273 processes- hundreds of cmd.exe and conhost.exe bloating memory

    I have used multiple malware and combofix 50+ steps and still have not eliminated the problem. Advise how to post hijackthis.log for advice.

    at a loss

    Moved to "Am I Infected?" since this is clearly an issue with an infection of some kind.

    HijackThis is no longer supported.

    First, download and run Sysinternals' Process Explorer.

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...rnals/bb896653

    Enable the VirusTotal check in Process Explorer by clicking on Options > VirusTotal.com > Check VirusTotal.com


    If VirusTotal flags any entries, click on the VirusTotal link to see what was identified.

    1273 processes- hundreds of cmd.exe and conhost.exe bloating memory

    Ok, got to it. System was bloated to over 2170 processes. VT would not run. I rebooted and started with 75 process and VT does now run. It is not clear how VT works or its use. I dont see a way to add a screen shot, yet of VT

    col Virus total format lists all of them at 0/XX. Assume this is good?

    See the VirusTotal FAQ -

    https://www.virustotal.com/en/faq/

    Did it flag any processes?

    You can use the built-in Windows Snipping Tool to get a screenshot and save it.

    You'll need to post the screenshot on a site like Dropbox, Imgur, etc, and post a link to it in the thread.
