Hi everyone,

I have this annoying problem I can't fix. Any help would be great. I have a svchost.exe that incrementally (gets greater over time) hogging my cpu bandwidth. Afetr about 4-6 hours of having the system on, it goes up to 100% usage. After running the Tasklist /SVC at the DOS prompt it is identified as a lmhost file. Yes i have run spybot destroying software (ad-aware and Search and Destroy) to no avail. None of my other computers do this. When I shut down the process (PID number sometimes changes) my hard drive then continues intermittantly (and doesn't stop) running but my cpu usage drops back to normal. I don;t know what else to do. I have the latest Mcafee anti-virus and it scans my system once a week. I cant figure it out please help.

thanks.

that is what i think is wrong with my. My CPu jumps from almost nothing to 100% and all i did was click on my start button. to open a program and i only had two things opened. AOL and Windows media player.
