I am running Windows XP SP3. Running Symantec AntiVirus Version 10.1.0.401
I recently had problems with IE taking up 100% of my CPU time, and thought it might have something to do with multiple copies of msiexec.exe. With help from EE folks, I resolved the 100% CPU usage problem, and thought that the msiexec.exe problem was resolved, but it is not.
After running ComboFix (log attached) , both copies of msiexec were removed from TaskManager, but when I rebooted, they both reappeared. When I tried to install Visual Studio 2008 I got the attached error message. I've tried deleteing these from the TM processes tab, but within seconds of deleting them, they reappear. I've looked all over the EE and Google sites and cannot find a current solution for this. I'm hoping the ComboFix log will help.
