by responding to post 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Otherwise the best answer I have for you given the limited information - turn off your computer

See the other recent threads about Windows 10 and hogging resources.
Windows is doing some massive reshuffle that can take slow your PC to a crawl for hours or days.
We are grizzling about it but there is nothing the customer can do. The most helpful suggestion was to replace the hardware and software!

Is it Windows defender asking you to delete a specific exe file?
I have noticed high cpu usage and memory spikes in taskmanager when loading the trademe webpage in google chrome. Maybe some of trademe's ad network is infected.

black-heart, Feb 5, 9:41am
Yeah thats something you should click ok to.
then download a free malware scanner like one of the following.
adwcleaner
malwarebytes
https://plumbytes.com/

The last one I haven't used myself but has been recommended elsewhere.

exwesty, Feb 5, 10:37am
Recommended as a scam, get new friends, it also has an affiliate program to pays you to get others to recommend the shit.

Call a computer technician to look at the computer.

And never let a "friend" who isn't a professional do anything to your computer.

nice_lady, Feb 5, 11:29am
100 % agree with that.
Your friends, neighbours, relatives can be your worst enemy when it comes to computers and you'll most likely end up having to call a real tech anyway.

black-heart, Feb 8, 5:01am
Actually it was the website of the creator of the great program (in XP days) called combofix. However I do agree with you now that I've used it, its scammy rubbish that every other AV vendor has blocked the download, or URL of. SO please don't try plumbytes malware scan its rubbish.
