hope someone can help me out as my pc has been going slower and slower every day and i have to either restart or worse still pull the plug to get my pc back to normal for the short time i get to use it.
I have norton 360, and thinking of not renewing at the end of the year.
but that said i still think that there is something else that is causing the pc to be slow.
in the task manager i noticed that the file. svchost.exe used by the SYSTEM not by me was using nearly 80% or more of the cpu
i could not do anything but pull the plug or kill the process, i opted to kill the process and the pc is back to normal
i am thinking i could have a virus in one of these svchost.exe files.
what can i do to check this out or check the whole pc for any possible problems that this file may cause.
are there any files i can get to scan my pc for possible problems?
i have done a full system scan with norton and all comes up blank apart from the normal cookies found.
