My pc got extremely slowed down a couple of weeks back. The last thing i remember i did was messing up with my IP address. The next day when I restarted my pc, it was extremely slow. I changed my IP to automatically configure but the problem still remains. I ran the task manager and saw the services.exe taking up 80% of my cpu. I am running Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2 on Pentium 4 1.80 GHz CPU and 1 GB of RAM. Thanks a lot for your help.

1) Are there any usb devices connected? If so, disconnect and reboot - do you still have the same problem?

2) Open msconfig. Choose "selective startup" (disable everything from loading) and reboot. What happens?

I would suggest that you follow the instructions in This Guide starting at Step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

Okay. But as my pc is on 100% cpu usage at everytime so I think it will take hours for that. Is there any alternative or I should really go on to doing it? Also I dont have internet working on the pc so I would have to transfer all the programs to it with a usb drive.

I don't know if your restore dates go back far enough, but try doing a System Restore.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

System Restore W7

Go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

Click on System Restore and then click on Next for the two following pages.

On the page titled Choose a Restore Point click on a date prior to your current problem and then click on Next. To see earlier restore points click on Show Other Restore Points.

On the following page you will have the option to view the programs and drivers that will be deleted. To go to the next page click on close and then Next.

On the following page click on Finish. You will then be prompted to confirm that you want to start the System Restore by clicking of Yes. This will immediately restart your computer to finish the System Restore.

After the computer has restarted click on Close.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Sir, I am not able to change the date back to any other month than January, 2011.

I have tried clicking on the back button on the calendar for previous months and waited for long but it remains the same.

I knew that it was a long shot, but worth trying.

Can you boot into Safe Mode? If you can is it any faster?

Also, I noticed that my pc does not start the first time. Its very weird.

Its like whenever I start it for the first time, it will restart just before the windows loading screen has to appear.

The restart is like the power to the pc was taken off for a second and then put in again and it goes on to happen atleast 7-8 times before the pc starts at different places like few times before the windows loading screen, few times after it and a few times at the user login screen.

But it does not happen if I restart it from the windows or by pressing the restart button on my pc.

Because your computer is off line and you will have to transfer data between two computers in order to run scans I'm going to suggest that this topic be moved to the Am I Infected forum. The Malware Removal Team deal with situations like this regularly and are much better suited in addressing this type of problem.

The AM I Infected forum is one of our busier forums, so please be patient if you are not helped immediately.
