I've been trying to solve this issue for the past week with little to no success. My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1400, with Windows XP SP2 installed on it, with Windows 98 as the Base OS. I've tried reinstalling XP, thinking it was an issue with my install of XP.

CPU Usage will read as 30% to as high as 90% with nothing but the desktop and key systems running. When I look at my proccesses though, the System Idle Process reads as 96 to 80%, which should make the CPU Usage 4-20%. This issue has been going on since the Windows Update last week. If anyone else has been havng this proble\m, or has a fi for it, PLEASE let me know, so I can stop slamming my head into a brick wall over this...

Just in case, I did a HiJackThis scan. Here's my logfile for it.

Hello, your log was movedfrom the XP to this forum because of safety considerations. HijackThis logs may only be posted in this forum and due to time constraints, we can only tell you whether or not your log appears free of infection or not--other troubleshooting can be done without a HijackThis log.

Your log looks clean. It doesn't look like a malware issue, rather a possible problem with a Windows update and possibly exacerbated by the system being an upgrade from 98 and old. I suggest you repost your questions in the XP forum and this time don't post the HijackThis log. However, it would be a good idea to post a link to this log as some might find the HJT information useful.

This topic is now closed.
