    hi all of you,
    i have windows 2000 professional with service pack 4, it was working very fine till one day when i was surfing internet at night. when i disconnected my windows got very slow almost 10% of original speed. i have scanned my pc with latest definition of avg but found no infection. i did not download any thing but just clicked on some links on internet. i have checked all the processes going on in my pc through task manager but didn't find anything spurious. there are about 29 processes altogether. but winmon.exe is taking 80-90% of cpu time and my processor usage is also 100%. i have also tried repairing the windows by the repair option in the windows setup, but that too did not worked.
    thanks

    If you are able, you might find someone with XP, and copy "msconfig" from their system32 directory and put it in the same spot. After that, I'd boot into "safe mode", run "msconfig" and have it go through a "Diagnostic Startup". Do this only after you've done a virus check...it sounds like that is the likely cause.
