    Hello,
    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 http://www.technibble.com/how-to-fix-svchost-using-100-cpu-memory-leak/ 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!!!)
