Please help me with this problem. I'm using Window 7 32-bit and experiencing Powershell taking all of my CPU. From what I've read, this is a malware. I scanned and deleted all malicious thing Malwarebytes detected but to no avail. I scanned with FRST and attached 2 txt file. Can someone help me with this, thank you very much.
