Posted 27 February 2009 - 11:01 AM

I have been struggling because my desktop CPU spikes to 100% and drops on a frequent (every 30 seconds basis.)

I started at the "am I infected forum." and here is what we did:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/204500/computer-spikes-to-100-help/

Things are better, the mouse is not freezing up as it did before. However, if I hit Ctrl-Alt-Del, it still shows 100% (always) before it drops to about 15% where it stays. FWIW, the mouse has not been freezing as it was before so from that point of view it seems smoother.

I just opened Process Explorer again and the System Idle Process is still using almost all of the CPU.

to reiterate, I'm using windows 2000 service pack 4.

Attach log is attached

Here is my DDS log

TIA all - I appreciate it!
