    Svchost.exe is taking up 98% of CPU for anything up to 90 minutes after I start up XP which means my PC is unusable for that time. This started after I installed SP3. I have downloaded Process Explorer and that shows that the culprit is wuaueng.dll What can I do?:(

    You appear to have a Dell OptiPlex GX280 desktop.

    Did you just recently upgrade Windows XP Professional to SP3?

    The SP3 upgrade for Windows XP was released over 5 years ago, so that computer has been outdated for a long time.

    Even if you use it only occasionally, it should be brought up-to-date when you do use it.

    Do the following so we can see what's installed and auto-starting and if any obvious issues need to be addressed.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Go here and click the large green "Download" button to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.5 (HijackThis.exe)

    After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows.

    Double-click it and allow its main window to load.

    Uncheck "Do not show this window when I start HiJackThis".

    Click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

    When the scan is finished in 30 - 60 seconds, a log file will appear.

    Save that log file.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE log file here.

    Your HiJackThis log shows a number of problems - which includes a number of outdated programs, an infestation of threats, unsafe computing practices, use of "cleaner/fixer" type utilities, etc..

    A clean reinstall of Windows XP SP3 and getting a fresh start with that computer might be your best option, but we'll try to help you.

    Do the following in the order that they're listed.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Author's site" button to download and save TFC.exe to your desktop.

    After it's downloaded and saved, close all open windows.

    Double-click it to load its main window.

    Click the "Start" button.

    Once the temp file deletion process is finished, it'll advise you how many temp files in KB's or MB's or GB's were deleted.

    If you're prompted to restart the computer to complete the deletion process, do so.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Bleeping Computer" button to download and save AdwCleaner.exe to your desktop.

    Close all open windows first, then double-click AdwCleaner.exe to load its main window.

    Click the "Scan" button, then allow the scanning process to finish.

    Click the "Clean" button, then click "OK".

    Allow the cleaning process to finish.

    When it's finished, click "OK" in each window that appears.

    The computer will restart.

    When the log appears during restart, save it.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE log here.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Start HiJackThis, but don't run a scan.

    Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

    Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

    Click on the "Save List" button.

    Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere.

    It'll then open in Notepad.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE file here.

    Did you complete the second part of post #6?

    Where is the AdwCleaner log that I requested in the third part of post #6?
    The log needs to be viewed so it can be determined if another "scan" and "clean" is needed.

    If you're making use of and following instructions in more than one forum, we have no way of knowing what you're doing in the other forum(s) that may interfere with or contradict what we're doing here.

    Adobe Reader 11.0.03 needs to be updated to version 11.0.05.
    Load its main window, then click "Help - Check for Updates".

    Advanced System Optimizer needs to be uninstalled.
    These type of programs can damage Windows and damage programs and wreak havoc with a computer.

    AVG 9.0 is very outdated and needs to updated to AVG 2014 or replaced with another antivirus program.

    Java 7 Update 25 needs to be updated to version 7 Update 45(1.7.0.45).

    Mozilla Firefox 23.0 needs to be updated to version 25.0.
    Load its main window, then click "Help - About Firefox".

    Get rid of Spybot - Search & Destroy, then replace it with SUPERAntiSpyware 5.6.0.1042.
    It's more user-friendly and works well with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.75.0.1300 which you already have installed.

    VLC Media Player 1.0.5 is very outdated and needs to be updated to version 2.1.0.

    I am away from this PC now until the end of the month. I misread your post and failed to post the Adw Cleaner log but I deleted most of the items that came up. I shall do another scan when get back. Frank I didn't mean to mess you around and am very grateful for your help. In my desperation, and before your first post, I googled svchost wuaueng.dll on my laptop. I didn't post to the forum but tried out something from a previous post. I can see how that can cause problems with what you are doing. Apologies.

    Since you won't be replying back here for about 3 weeks, I won't submit any further instructions until then.

    All except Firefox v25 because my Roboform password filling app has not been updated yet for that version.
