Hi folks, I've been struggling with this for a while....ever since updating my Win XP Home with SP2 I've had big problems with CPU usage jumping up really high and slowing all aps down, with no apparent cause. Some basic info:

Intel 4 (1.84)
768 RAM
2 120Gb HDs

All drivers updated.
Adaware, Spybot, and AVG antivirus= all 3 updated and run daily.
I've also removed most non-essential startup programs.

I'd apprerciate any help I can get. I just want my fast computer back again!
Thanks!

Does this log look clean to anyone? If so, please let me know, so I can look for other culprits. Any ideas about this CPU problem are most welcome. Thanks again!

I don't see anything bad in your log. Did your Housecall scan find anything? What about your AVG, Ad-Aware, and Spybot scans?

Thanks QuietFusion.
My AVG, Adaware and Spybot have not found anything recently.

What is the 'Housecall' scan you mentioned. Is that from a previous antivirus program I used? I currently only use AVG, so might I be able to remove the Housecall thing and possibly speed up my PC?

Thanks Again!

Atleast, you tried a housecall scan. Let me know if the scan picks up anything. http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
