My 32bit Vista Acer Aspire 4730Z has recently fallen victim to the "compatibilitycheck.exe" problem. See (http://forum.kaspersky.com/lofiversion/index.php/t313939.html) for details on this problem.
I repeatedly go into Safe Mode and using DOS functionality delete the offending files ,compatibilitycheck.exe and others in a directory named "Compatibility Verifier" which often have spawned into all user's account on the PC. I do this with WiFi off, ie. not connectivity to the greater web. I reboot with WiFi off in normal mode and the PC is lightening fast. However after I reconnect to the web via WiFi the infection/virus or whatever it is returns, hogs CPU, and brings my Acer to it's Knees.
I can watch the spawning take place before my eyes in Windows Task Manager "Processes" where multiple instances show up each grabbing CPU.
Am running FireFox 36.0 with NoScript 188.8.131.52 and TBird 31.5.0, CLAMWIN ver 098.6 AV is also installed with current Virus DB always updated.
No other browsers are even on my machine except the built in IE which I never touch.
Could this infection possibly be coming in through my web connections through either Mozilla application
AM NOW ENTERING THIS ISSUE ON A MACBOOK PRO MacBook appears to be immune from compatibilitycheck.exe issues so whatever "Troubleshooting Information" i send in by pushing "Share Data" IS IRRELEVANT to my PC issues.
