"Updates from HP Agent" is a global start-up item on my system. It is slowing my system considerably and making me crazy. Is this a necessary item?
I've tried ending the process, but there are other "agent" processes that seem to be doing the same thing/taking over when HP Agent is stopped, ie, sloooowing things down.
In Task Manager, under Performance, CPU usage jumps up and down from 4% to 100%. I've run HijackThis and ComboFix and have attached those logs if they would be helpful.
Also, on the ComboFix log there is C:\HP\bin\cloaker.exe. Sounds sinister. lol
thanks for your help!
