    Don't know if there is a virus on the computer, but the computer is running so slow that i can't do anything. The CPU Usage is perminatly into the high 80% and has been at 100% for long periods. I've enclosed a Hijackthis file

    To download HJTsetup.exe from SpyKiller To Download HijackThis go to the following at the File Repository
    Click on the link below to Download HijackThis Self Installer:

    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HJTsetup.exe

    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply. DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
    A security expert with a gold shield to the right of their name should take a look at your log - please be patient.

    You have Norton and AVG running - remove one of them (Norton)

    Please click here http://www.majorgeeks.com/Sun_Java_Runtime_Environment_d4648.html to download the latest version of JAVA Install the application, then go to the Add/Remove Programs options in the Control Panel and Remove ALL previous versions of JAVA.

    There is a process named 'spoolsv.exe' that is taking upto 99% of the CPU all the time. When I end this process, via the task manager, the computer runs fine for a couple of mins, before this process starts up again. Does this program have anything to do with printing also because i can't print anything after i had ended the original process, even after its restarted itself.

    any ideas would be brilliant
