My PC recently slowed down hella. My internet is fine once I get internet explorer to open but any programs take forever. My CPU usage is always high no matter what is running or not running, as far as I can tell, 90% or above.I went through all the steps like the guy with the slow mouse did in another post i.e. cleanups, defrag, ram enhancement software, virus scan. I even did a netstat check to see if a trojan wasn't being picked up by the virus scans and firewall and there was still a remote connection because that is what it feels like. It started after I began using Remotely Anywhere to d/l some files from my dad's computer but I've since deleted that hoping that would close up any possible port action through that. Any guess to what it might be?

WINDOWS XP
INTEL PENTIUM III
256 MB RAM

Welcome :)

Download and Run HighJackThis.

When you run the program, click Scan. Then when the log appears, click Save (not fix... yet). Give the log a name and then it will appear in Wordpad. Copy the log and paste it here.

Rescan and put a check next to each of these then close all browser windows and click "fix checked"

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CMESys] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\CMEII\CMESys.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ShowBehind] C:\WINDOWS\sbnet\ShowBehind.exe

Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\CMEII
C:\WINDOWS\sbnet\ShowBehind.exe

Do you play games on the net (as in pc games not online games) through WildTangent?

If not then this needs to go to:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wcmdmgr] C:\WINDOWS\wt\updater\wcmdmgrl.exe -launch
