Do you happen to have a USB scanner attached to you PC? OR did you recently apply any XP security patches?

it is not my machine. so i do not know. i have tried everything. scanned everything. virus...spyware..adware. cleaned up a lot but not the problem. this is weird. svchost.exe is 100% then when ended system idle becomes 100%. I can click on everything on my desktop, but my task bar is not allowing me anything. just an hour glass

Can you start in safe mode? Does it make any difference?

Also, what other processes are running in TM?

We need a Hijack This log file to be able to analyze what is happening on your computer. If you do not have a copy of Hijack This please follow the instructions in order: (if you have HJT please make certain HJT is in it's own folder and follow instructions 4 to 6)

1. Please go to you're 'My Documents' folder, right-click and select 'New > Folder' and name the folder 'Hijack This'.

2. Download Hijackthis to the new folder from this website: http:/www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/

3. Double Click on 'HijackThis.zip' to extract and install HijackThis.exe to the new folder.

4. Close ALL windows except HJT

5. SCAN with HJT and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')

6. POST the log in this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')


DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS SOME OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER
