First post, of course because I have cpu issues. I am pretty handicapped when it comes to computers, so please bear w/ me.
Started last week, I had AV security suite take over. I had someone remove it, but cpu still seems slow. I saw that he used this forum, so I fiqured I would try myself. I hav been searching the archives, and relized I will need guidence.
I would like to have help identifying and remove any problems, Install better safeguards, and organize (defragment) and cleanup the cpu for optimal performance.
I AM running windows XP. I have ran Malwarebytes. I have an older Symantic corperate edition, that still catches virus, I am able to update virus protection and run a manual scan. I was having problems w/ it after the Av Secuity suite incident. I found a thread here that allowed me to change a couple parameters, that aloowed me to run a manual scan. I had read posts by the Symantec Techs, stating that the program was too old to keep up w/ the task basically. SO waht is the best AV program to replace it if they are correct?
I have installed process explorer and Killed a svshost.exe that was using 99% of the usage. I am still getting redirects so, alot of garbage in there. I fiqure I have to do more then kill to redirect, since it is probably hid in the cpu well.
I appreciate any help.
