Hi I really need some help on this one. My PC in the last week has started to have processor utilization spikes. I've ran a lot of virus scanners from safe mode and they are all coming up empty. I've tried Trend Micro House Call, AVG 9.0, Malwarebytes, Spybot, and Kaspearsky and all of them are coming up with zero results.

I downloaded process monitor and every time the spikes happen I see a whole lot of these operations going on:


9:13:50.2916787 PM services.exe 796 ReadFile C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe C:\WINDOWS\Temp\$$$dq3e SUCCESS Services and Controller app Offset: 11,350,883, Length: 743 C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe Microsoft Corporation NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 2368 00000000:000003e7 0 752 5.1.2600.5755 n/a 32-bit

literally about a hundred lines of this same read file process happens each time the spikes occur. They occur about every 25 seconds there are three spikes, and then a brief maybe 45-1 minute of stable activity and then the process repeats again. I've got a decent working knowledge of computers but an engineer or computer scientist I am not. I also ran a hijack this log. Do you guys spot anything I should fix? Any help is greatly appreciated

I actually got the issue resolved now. I told hijackthis to delete that temporary file that the system kept trying to read each time on the process monitor. I might have messed something up for all I know ,but the processor spikes have completely gone away. I don't see any abnormal network or hard drive activity. So I guess the issue is kind of resolved itself, but if you want I will still do those scans. I was about to the point of reformatting the whole machine but now it's working just fine again.
