not sure if this is the right sub but I know a lot of people use NoPing for pc gaming so I just want to warn anyone using it https://imgur.com/enHHW2x here is the quote from original post about it on an obscure subreddit: "Lately I have noticed that while my PC is idle or the processor isn't under heavy load the noping application "appmain.exe" will use a lot of my CPU usually around 40-50%. While playing tibia its usually down to 5% which is more realistic but since I usually leave my PC on at night whenever I return its always back up to 40-50%. It could be a bug but high CPU usuage usually means bitcoin miner from my experience. Has anyone experienced anything similar? I got a i5-2500k 3.3GHz if it makes any difference. Anyone notice abnormal CPU usage when not many applications are running? Picture of high CPU usage by NoPing https://gyazo.com/ad56d30d6885141bfa87a80d959a5e3f" and a link to the thread: https://www.reddit.com/TibiaMMO/comments/75rjpt/noping_nptunnel_possible_hidden_bitcoin_mine
With the scandal of hidden bitcoin miners in ads has anyone thought to capitalize on the idea in a more acceptable fashion?
The gray industry that is the ad market right now is a complex issue. With the virus's it tends to export and just plain terrible ads people actively pay to get around these options. However with the bitcoin miner scandal a thought occurred to me and I thought Id ask about it here since its right up your guys ally. The question is more logic based than anything. Do you think a mining program could be created that could work with a website to mine bitcoins with the users express permission and not be exploited, and or bogged down with excessive cpu usage? The end goal would be that a user could sell out a part of his computer to access ad free versions of websites and still let the website owner make a profit off of the user. Then when the user is done with the website and closes it the program would stop mining for the website. Take notice that im unfamiliar with how bitcoin mining truly works aside from generating hashes, or some witchcraft like that.
So, for the first time in the 8+ years that I've owned my own computer, I am experiencing an odd performance of my computer in terms of CPU usage. I'm a gamer and a music producer, so my CPU is used often. However, it seems to sit at 100% idle, or when programs like Chrome and AVG Antivirus are open. While I have yet to diagnose the source of the issue, all I know is that it was not like this yesterday; for I have diagnostics and monitoring on all my PC components 24/7. So after realizing this issue, I system restored to two days in the past, on 7/20/20. That did not work. I proceeded to install and use several antivirus programs one after another in order to combat or diagnose the issue. I uninstalled the programs that caused high CPU usage as well, but only for it to increase while idle. Just by looking, I can tell that it's as if my normal CPU usage has been multiplied as if there is a background program multiplying said CPU usage. I'm aware that malware and things like hidden bitcoin miners can cause this, but my antivirus programs have yet to pick it up if present. So here I am thinking if I've got some sort of virus that lingers on my PC despite a system restore into the past... or is my CPU finally ready to be replaced? I hope this is not the case because it's a good CPU and I'm not in a comfortable financial spot to upgrade my PC either. I'm looking for any help and am pretty much desperate to get this fixed. Let me know if you need anything in order for you to properly help. Specs: i7 5700k, 64GB DDR4 Ram, GTX 1060 3GB, 1TB SSD w/ 3TB total extra storage running Windows 10 Pro EDIT: It seems to have gone down, my CPU idles at around 20% but seems to spike with something called Software Reporter Tool within Google Chrome and any antivirus I open. I have not tried out other programs, but am very scared if it is a virus. Hopefully, someone will diagnose.
My GPU is suddenly running 30 degrees C hotter than usual? Is thermal paste that unsealed the reason?
My graphics card is an xfx r9 280 that I've had for 4-5 years now. One day out of nowhere, it started to run around 70 degrees C at idle, which is much much hotter than usual. So far, I've tried:
Dusting the PC and GPU.
Reseating the GPU.
Updating GPU drivers.
Scan for hidden bitcoin minemalware.
None helped. My guess is that the thermal paste unsealed and it stopped transferring heat correctly. Is that possible? I happened to remove the GPU last week to clean out the dust. My plan right now is to replace the thermal paste on the GPU.
DO NOT USE bonuscon.com UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR PC TO BE USED AS A BITCOIN MINER
EDIT : You may now disregard this post as it is somewhat old. There is a new website called bonuscon where you can watch videos, streams, and do offers/surveys to earn points in which you can use to buy popular games. Some of the games that you can buy with said points are Overwatch, CS: GO, and COD. Although this sounds great because the stream is mostly passive earning... the site has a hidden bitcoin miner that is using your CPU power to mine for bitcoin. This would be ok with the site asked for permission but it does not. Anyway, if you want to use the site just download a chrome extension to block the miners. I use No Coin for chrome.
Why tf is my GPU on 100% load all the time? Even if I´m connecting to the WW3 servers it´s on full load. I might sound a bit paranoid, but there might be a hidden bitcoin miner somewhere. Since I am not familiar with that kind of stuff I can´t search for it myself.
Sniper Elite 4, Planet Coaster, Dishonored 2, Total War: Warhammer - All using Denuvo, all have been cracked!
It seems that there is a "new" release crew specialized in cracking Denuvo. While their cracks do work, they are also heavily protecting the source-code of them. No one can be sure they are 100% save to use yet (hidden bitcoin miners, malware, ransomsware, etc.), but so far nobody has had any issues. Edit: The group has also released a dedicated server for Sniper Elite 4 online play which is huge.
Hey guys, I am playing (trying to play) Skyrim at 2560x1440 after I upgraded to two R9 290X cards due to the limiting 2GB VRAM of my previous SLI 680GTX. And I am not sure whether there is something wrong with the cards, or I am doing something wrong. I get many visual bugs if crossfire is enabled (such as extremely bright sun/game, bugged water ripples, broken DoF (if I use any ENB at all) etc). And without crossfire enabled, any ENB I choose lowers my performance to unplayable ~20FPS. I have tried turning VSync off, which helps a bit, however I still get the visual bugs with crossfire on, and the unplayable ~20FPS with any ENB on. I have also tried turning off vSync from the ENB itself to no avail. I am using the Steam version with all the DLCs bought separately, and I was wondering whether any of you had a similar problem or know what the trouble might be, or whether its simply Skyrim not liking AMD cards? These are my first AMD cards and I have no idea what else I can do to troubleshoot this problem. And according to some youtube videos (and I guess simple logic), I should be getting a lot more performance out of even a single R9 290X, but as I said I am not experienced with AMD and am not sure how good/stable Crossfire is. Anyway, my other specs are: Intel i7 3770k @ 4.4GHz Water Cooled (~50 degrees under load, so its not the CPU overheating and throttling) Asus P8Z77-Deluxe Motherboard 16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz RAM The game is installed on a RAID0 of 2 Samsung 840 250gb SSDs. 1000W Cooler Master Silent Pro PSU Aaaand finally I am running the latest AMD drivers. P.S: I have checked for any malware including any hidden bitcoin miners, but my system is clean. Thanks, -stuste
Bitcoin Miner malware, detected with Malware Bytes but I believe it's still hidden somewhere.
so a few days ago I did something stupid and tried to torrent a game for the first time and ended up installing a Bitcoin Miner onto my PC :/ It was very obvious that it was malware as it quickly seemed to hijack Google Chrome. I scanned with Windows Defender but nothing was found so I checked out the sticky post on here and got a trial of Malware Bytes, which detected the malware and quarantined it, then I removed it. I really thought it was that simple but I think it's still there. I had Spotify playing music on idle and got curious, did CTRL + ALT + DELETE to open up Task Manager and quickly saw my CPU % shoot down from 100% to 2% - %5, which is what it's been sitting at when I'm using it right now. Other than that, there are a couple of weird things that make me think the virus is still there:
Programs keep getting Suspended status in Task Manager (this is happening to Malware Bytes and Google Chrome), which never used to happen before. This a brand new PC I built in January so it shouldn't be doing this that often. I tried to open Malware Bytes now to scan again and it just froze on "Not Responding" and I can't seem to close it...
There is a strange "Suspended" background process in Task Manager that uses up 3.6MB of memory. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like: http://prntscr.com/lchp1w :(
When I right click ^ "open file location" on the suspended process and the 2 others below it, the location I get is C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and it's titled svchost.exe, which I read is a normal Windows process but there are A LOT of them running in my Task Manager right now
All the other svchost.exes are under C:\Windows\System32, which I read is fine. Does this mean that the one in SysWOW64 is malware/infected?
As per the stickied thread, I ran rkill.com and turned on "scan for rootkits" in my Malware Bytes trial, and also ran the ADWCleaner. I did all of the above after I had originally removed the malware with Malware Bytes, so all these second scans didn't detect anything. Is there anything else I could do to actually detect the malware and remove it? EDIT: Google Chrome keeps not responding, same with Malware Bytes. Can't uninstall Malware Bytes and Firefox stopped responding too. Writing this on my phone since I turned everything off briefly after writing this post, since my mouse started moving extremely slow and a repetitive beeping sound started coming out of my speakers. I swear it was like whatever infected me detected whenever I looked up information on malware removal and visited this subreddit ...
I really hope C&C (Coingeek & nChain) are going to attack exchanges and try to cause as much chaos on BCH as possible. I want to see how strong Bitcoin Cash is. And this might even force hidden actors in to revealing themselves. I want to see how much the chinese miners care about BCH. /r/btc
