Unhappy 99 CPU usage from svchost.exe running DCOM Server Process Launcher
Yesterday afternoon my computer stopped responding so I had to use the 10-second safety turn off. This morning Windows XP Professional didn't boot up at all so I had to do an in-place reinstall of Windows. It worked and my system is now up and running but very very slow because one of the svchost.exe process is using between 80-100% of my CPU (which has only 1.8 Ghz). Using Process Explorer I see that the specific svchost.exe consuming my CPU is running DCOM Server Process Launcher [DcomLaunch] AND Terminal services [TermService]. I'm not sure if this helps you but I've recently started playing again Counter Strike and had some trouble with it.
I've tried solving the problem using the advise on but that didn't work out because there was an erorr when installing the last update so I restored my PC to where it was just before I tried fixing it.
Thank you in advance for your solutions and I will try telling if they worked (just posting this was a gargantous effort because of my problem, but thanks to Chrome I've done it!!!)
