My CPU has been 100% for over a month. I first thought it was a virus so a scanned w/ everyprogram out there and nothing would detect anything, HJT log was reviewed and nothing found so I went down the Registry Path and tried to repair with Registry Repair Tools to no avail. So I backed up all my files and did a complete OS re-install in CPU is still at 100% so I'm back to suspecting a Trojan.

Could someone please review my new HJT log and see if there is anything in there that is suspicious?

Thanks!!

Log looks fine BUT

You have Norton and McAfee running and that could easily cause the problem - you only want one active AV running on a system - remove one

The problem persisted long began before McAfee was installed. The Norton AV was disabled when I ran that log earlier and I just finished removing it and the problem still persists.
Another strange symptom when my CPU started to max was that my USB ports stopped working. I ran a system test w/ PC Doctor to see if my CPU, HD, memory etc. might be bad but everything checked out fine.

I wondered that to at one time....in Task Manager it shows it to be one largest memory users. I'd close the program and it would basically shut down my desktop... who knows.

MFD,
There were not exclamation marks in the device manager. Should I disable all of the USB's and than try a reboot and try to enable ?

Thanks!

I disabled the USB's... I did not get an exclamation mark just red X's. Tried to reboot and it's seems to be stuck while attempting to shut down. The "Windows is shutting down..." has been on my screen for hours and I'm reluctant to do a hard shut down. Idea's?

The USB ports will still not detect devices and the CPU is still continuing to run at a sustained 100%.
