    My friend has a Dell dimension E310

    P4 Celeron 2.80ghz w/ XP pro sp3.

    I checked task manager there is a process called services.exe it is taking up to 70% cpu, I did safemode and it is running at 50%.

    I try to end task and it says that it will not do it.

    here is the hijack log:
