I think I have a deadly virus or something. My svchost.exe ALWAYS uses 100% CPU Usage or something really high. I took some screenshots for to help and explain my situation.
sorry if the screenshots dont work, geocities is a crappy hoster anyways.
I am using Windows XP Professional SP1.
I used Yahoo Anti-Spy, Ad-Adware, and Spybot Search and Destroy. I also have Mcafee and i have my Window's firewall turned on.
It lags ,y whole system. Usually, my documents save instanteously. Now it takes like 30 seconds to save.
Here's my HijackThis Log:

I am having a similar problem . . . I recently discovered that when I tried to update the definitions for Ad Aware, my computer froze; now it has been taking a long time to open/close, and in Task Manager, svchost is hogging all of my processing.

I spoke with a Dell rep (for like 5 hours) and we could not seem to get it taken care of. I successfully ran MS Anti-spyware; Norton Anti-spyware/Anti-virus, and downloaded the Ad Aware definitions into a zip drive, and ran it in safe mode. MS did find a spyware, but zapped it.

The dell rep walked me thru the Hijackthis log, and took care of a couple of issues.

Anyone have any ideas??? What do i do next??

Thanks so much!!
