High, i'm on windows xp and am stumped.

my computer is constantly running at about 100% and I can't identify the app that's taking up so much space

I've run adaware/spybot/ norton and they came up with nothing

I've tried a clean start with msconfig and it didnt work. but I don't have the problem in safe mode.

I've also done windows update, disk cleanup, and defrag; all to no avail. Any recomendations? here's my log

Nothing in the log

ALT CTRL DEL - Process tab - click on cpu twice to sort by highest users - see what the process is that is using the cpu

WOW. It's jumping ALL over the place. the processes wont even maintain their mem ussage long enough for me to follow it. The only consistent one is iexplore.exe which is at 38,000. but that's normal because i'm running housecall.
