Hi there,

I noticed my CPU running 100% and found out that a process, "nslookup.exe" is running hard... and hiding when I open task manager.
The process looks legit but I strongly suspect a miner.
So I downloaded Farbar, put it on my desktop and run it.
Ive attached the two txt files.

Can anyone help please ?

Hello, Welcome to MalwareTips.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.
===

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The Computer will restart when the fix is completed.

It will create a log (Fixlog.txt).
===

Before posting the Fixlog.txt I suggest your clean this folder.
Comment: Delete quarantined files from Windows Defender.

How to: Delete/Restore quarantined files.

Follow the directives on the page to delete all the files in the quarantine folder.

Restart the computer when done.
<<<>>>

Please post the Fixlog.txt and let me know what problem persists.
