Javier I've split your post off from the others; please do not "piggyback".

Start by going to Add/Remove programs and removing "new.net" and rebooting. Then post a HijackThis Scanlog using the version 1.98.2 available here:

http://www.net-integration.net/tools/hijackthis.html

The number of svchost.exe entries is not an issue. Just how much memory is being consumed though? And what is the percent cpu usage? Ignore system idle process.
