    Stop running things to make your CPU at 100%!

    Seriously though go into your task manager and see what programs ard the culprit (you need to look at the processes tab and it will tell you per process what is using the CPU time) this will tell you WHAT is running at 100%. Let us know if you don't recognize it you can get things like this from viruses and whatnot so I would do all the cleanup stuff too E.G. virus scan/ad-ware/spyware cleaning.

    ok cisvc.exe is at 99 and 98 %. also, i scan every day with spybot search and destroy, everything is fine there ALWAYS. I just ran adaware it found 11 mru's that are too low to even have a rating, i took 'em out anyway. i have avast and it has shown nothing wrong. i use clean up! and cw shredder and spyware blaster and windows defender. there is something else wrong. I went to search for files and folders to try to find this cisvc.exe and it was not responding. tried again and again still not responding. any ideas? also when i had a windows update last week it said it failed to install microsoft.NET framework 1.1 service pack 1, so i tried several more times and it just won't install. it downloads perfectly but fails to install. so i tried several more times and still it won't install. also i call this breaking up i don't know what the technical word for it is but when i close one screen to see another underneath it leaves bits and pieces and then finally finishes with whatever it was doing and i can see the page i was trying to see.

    442924. i just ran that scan you gave me a link to - the registry booster with uniblue - it found 219 errors and fixed 15 free, to get the rest fixed i have to buy it. Will it REALLY fix all the rest of the errors? Or after i buy it and run it, will it say some couldn't be fixed or worse MOST couldn't be fixed?

    I wouldn't buy it... there are some alternatives out there, and its really just preference..
    For spyware/adware/malware removal, try Ewido. (http://www.ewido.net/en/)
    For registry cleaning, there are so many freeware programs out there, that part is also just preference. If you want to purchase software that will do all of that, Norton Systemworks is pretty good, but there are some bad user reports of it clogging up the system more than it helps... So dont try to run it on a not-so-high end system.
    Norton systemworks includes virus/adware/spyware/malware scanner, a "one button checkup" utility, and basic cleanup/registry cleaners as well as backup/restore utilities.

    There are three different verisons: Full, basic and premeir. The full verison includes Norton Antivirus, and the basic just includes syetem cleanup/optimization tools. If you already have an antivirus solution, I recommend you go with the basic edition. Premeir includes Antivirus and the cleanup/optimization tools, as well as additional recovery tools. I wouldnt recommend installing this on your system.
    URL for more details... http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/themes/freedom/index.jsp

    Also, I cannot guarantee you that this will solve your problem, but since you ran the scan and it found errors, I would rule out basic stuff like that first...

    Please do this:

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    • 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 dialogue 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.

    There are some unnecessary items in the list that you can remove:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\jusched.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Software Update] C:\Program Files\HP\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Works Update Detection] C:\Program Files\Microsoft Works\WkDetect.exe
    O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk = C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe

    You can download and install the .NET Framework Serive Pack from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...4f-088e-40b2-bbdb-a83353618b38&DisplayLang=en

    Also visit the Windows Update site again and see if tehre anre any new or more updates available. Do the Custom Scan and see if there's any Optional Software Updates as well.

    And uninstall Registry Booster.

    ok, i removed those 5 items from hijack this. And faint and fall over dead i was able to download that framework thing. I had tried and tried at the microsoft windows update site. it would always download but never install. when i went to the link you posted i downloaded it and it wouldn't install but said WHY. it said i had a hotfix that needed to be removed first and then try to install and it worked. yea!!! then i went back to microsoft windows update and scanned and put the hotfix back on. yea!! this is great news. thank you so much!!! I will uninstall registry booster right now.

    Also, that link was for the process information of cisvc.exe. That registry scanner was just some gay advertisement that those kinds of sites use because they want money, and not because they think that you actually have a use for it. So it had absolutely nothing to do with fixing your memory problem, and probably gave you hundreds of false positives since you're using the demo version and they want you to buy the full version.

    I just thought I'd clarify this before I went back to googling my own problem.

    Sorry lost track of this thread -

    Type SERVICES.MSC in the Run dialog box, find the Indexing Service in your list, right click it, select Properties, and then in the Startup Type field, select Disabled. Restart the computer and it will stay disabled.

    Tell me if this works.
