Hello. I have Vista Home Premium. Two days ago, my CPU started running hot. In processes I see that explorer.exe is running anywhere from 30% to as much as 60%. svchost is alos running high. My memory is pretty much maxed out. My cpu meter will hit 100% consistently.

Before posting here, I did some checking and found a lot of posts on this but no consistency in the causes. I ran HijackThis and found "runit_32", "runitu_32", and a text file with nothing in it in a folder called 'runit' in my programs. All info I could find said get rid of it. I ran Avast and SPybot and turned up nothing. I ran Trend's Housecall and turned up SPYWARE_KEYL_KGBKEYLOG. I let Trend dispose of that. I ran everything again and found nothing. I uninstalled AVAST and installed Comodo. It found nothing. I uninstalled all my Apple software except the actual iTunes and Quicktime programs. I still have the same problem. I have disabled almost everything I could in STart-up and still have the problem.

In addiiton, I tried to do a system restore and it won't work. It keeps telling me it's unseccessful and to try again. I also cannot seem to change anything to do with my user account except my picture. (I am the Admin)



Here is my most recent HijackThis Log. ANy help would be greatly appreciated. I hope I posted this in the right place.
