Hello. My computer is a
Compaq Presario SR1365CL
AMD (anthlon)64 processor 3300+
2.00 gb of ram
Nvidia 6400 graphics card
Dlink network adapter card
Windows XP sp3


My problem: there is an svchost.exe PID 1080 with around 17k memory in process manager. I dont know where its coming from and i have no clue what program is using it. But I know that its takeing all my bandwidth because when i go to do a task involving internet (gaming, streaming, surfing etc) it has heavy lag. No one else in the house is lagging except me. Then as soon as i kill the process it unlags and i now have 10 mins of lag free internet. Then 10 mins later the process reappears and im stuck with the process again.



If you decide to help me then thank you in advance

Right click it and click Go to Services if it's available. That should tell you the application using it.

PS: I'm new so I don't know if I'm allowed to help/answer or not. :thumbsup:

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic358847.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
