I'm having problems with explorer.exe - when I boot, everything is fine, but then it starts to take up CPU time. Just a little bit at first, but if left alone, it takes up more and more cycles until it is taking up all 100%. My system (WinXP Home SP2) is completely clean, no viruses and no adware (as far as I can tell) so I'm really frustrated by this. Here's the HJT logfile:

Fix this

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WildTangent CDA] "C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\CDA\GameDrvr.exe" /startup "C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\CDA\cdaEngine0500.dll"

Boot and delete this folder

C:\Program Files\WildTangent

Run ActiveScan online virus scan

http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new HiJackThis log along with the results from ActiveScan

So I ran the scan - it found nothing at all. The problem is still persisting. Here's the new HJT logfile:

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
· Install ewido.
· During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
· Launch ewido
· It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
· On the left side of the main screen click update
· Click on Start and let it update.
· DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.

Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


Run Ewido:
· Click on scanner
· Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
· During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
· When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
· Save the report to your desktop
This will take some time to run!
Post that log

Did everything you requested...I wasn't able to run ewido in safe mode as my mouse doesn't work (it's running through a COM port) and there was no way to execute the scan command using only the keyboard. Ran it under normal mode and here's the log. About the only significant items are the last two which were some spyware from a WildTangent app (an RPG called "Fate"):

Hey...thanks for all your help! I finally clued in to what was going on: I have a little USB card reader hooked up to my system and I wondered if that was the issue, so I unplugged it. Sure enough, explorer.exe's CPU usage dropped to 0%. I'm sorry to have taken up all your time. Still, your advice was invaluable, and I appreciate all your support! Thanks again!

Thanks for reporting back on your find - there is no 100% answer, but I;m gald you found it

mark it solved via thread tools above

Never got to the point to do this but get all of these tools to keep things clean

SpyBot V1.4 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html
AdAware SE 1.06 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
MS AntiSpy - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...A8BD-DBF62EDA9671&displaylang=en&Hash=RDXMHB6 (XP and W2K only)

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
In SpyBot - After an update run immunize
