Hi, I'm renting a Windows VPS and it's been working pretty well till lately when it has slowed to a crawl. In the Task Manager I find processes like "cpx.exe" (many of these), dataup.32. and others that I don't recognize. I even found an installation of a bulk emailing software called "Turbo Mailer" which I have just uninstalled.
Googling around I found this page:
which recommended running Malwarebytes and Farbar Recovery... which I did. Malwarebytes found over 150 infected files and quarantined them, but still CPX.EXE is still there. I've also run TrendMicro HouseCall and it found 5 viruses which it deleted. Still didn't get rid of CPX.EXE though.
I took a screenshot (attached) of the "Installed Programs" I have on that VPS and there's a Chinese looking entry in there... that was none of my doing. That can't be good.
I didn't uninstall the chinese thing yet...
Can anyone help please?
