Hi All,

Newby Randy here with an old issue that I need help with. I have a 9 year old Compaq 2590 P-4 laptop and lately CPU usage is always very high at idle. Painfully slow with XP-Pro and a gig of ram (max for this old machine).

I suspect I've been hijacked so I ran Hijack This and below is the log file. I'm prepared to reformat to fix this but maybe one of you gurus can advise further. Thanks Much.

Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4

One problem; when I run tasklist, the DOS window disappears immediately after the file is created. Any suggestions?

Still having problem when I run tasklist, the DOS window disappears immediately after the file is created. Shut down Win Defender & anti virus, same results.

I have attached the system info image. I would agree with you about the age of the PC, and indeed there may be some hardware malfunction, yet I have another P4 desktop, 2.4 w/ 1GB ram, running about the same processor & ram setup that flys much quicker than this laptop.

Speed drop is really noticeable whenever I open IE or pretty much any program. Processor use hits the ceiling at that point and slowly drops to "around" normal. I'm leaning heavily toward reformatting the drive and loading XP fresh. This has worked in the past with other PCs that had the same/similar issue.

I have rarely used this old laptop (bought it new) in the last 9 years so I don't suspect that it's worn out. If you don't find any glaring problems, I think I'll go ahead and start fresh with this one. Thanks Much for all of your assistance.

Intel Processor 2.30Ghz
Running at 1.59Ghz.

Control Panel > Power Options.
Change the power scheme to Always On.
Apply > Ok > then restart the computer.

Then check System Properties again and see if the change has been made.
