    hi again :D

    well, this doesnt happen to me very often, but sometimes (maybe 1 in 20 boots) i get 50% (or near enough) cpu usgae when my pc is idle, i normally notice it when im playing a game and obviously i can clearly notice a decrease in performance.

    If anyone knows why this is happening and if its meant to be happening could ya let me know :| and if needed could someone tell me how to fix it :)

    ps- if its norton im soon gonna remove it and get avg anyway! :)

    ty!

    Hi,
    I can see you have Norton running, does this include the Firewall ?, as I notice you have ZonAlarm Firewall and the two together will conflict and cause you problems.

    Disable one and see how it runs, as re:- the HJT log, sorry a bit beyond me yet, lol

    Hi again,
    It was this line in your HJT log that made me ask.

    O23 - Service: Norton AntiVirus Firewall Monitor Service (NPFMntor) - Symantec Corporation - C:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\IWP\NPFMntor.exe

    Hope someone comes along soon to help you.
