I acquired the fake XP Security Center virus a couple months ago, and a team member from this website helped me successfully remove it. However, ever since I've executed the steps in the preparation guide, my computer has been sluggish. The slower speed even interfered when the team member was directing me on what steps to take after finishing the steps from the preparation guide. I have already executed the steps from the "Slow Computer?" topic, but my computer is still sluggish. Specifically, I've noticed that the wuauclt.exe and svchost.exe processes spike up in memory usage when I boot the computer and load my desktop. The processes eventually decline in memory usage after the computer has been on for a while, and at that point, my computer actually feels "normal." I also notice, in general, that if I execute too many actions for my computer, my mouse goes invisible. What I mean by this is that the cursor image remains in one spot, but the actual mouse function still works. At that point, I usually 1) have to restart my computer and deal with the sluggishness all over again or 2) navigate my computer with what hotkeys I know while using highlighted buttons and links as guides to show me where my mouse actually is. I'm wondering if the wuauclt.exe process was damaged by the fake XP Security Center virus? I searched my problem already on google and it seems some other people have had issues with spikes in the wuauclt.exe. I'd appreciate any help I can get.

That looks good.

Process Explorer log looks good as well.

Let's start with reducing startup list, as some of those startups are not needed to operate your computer.

Re-run QuickStartup and UN-check following items:

Microsoft Works Update Detection
NvCplDaemon
nwiz
SoundMan
IgfxTray
Adobe ARM
TkBellExe
HP Software Update
SunJavaUpdateSched
PowerReg Scheduler.exe

Restart computer, use it for a while and let me know how it goes.

It seems to have alleviated the problem. The wuauclt.exe process isn't spiking in memory usage as usual.

Around late May of this year, you helped me resolve an issue regarding wuauclt.exe fluctuation upon booting up. Unfortunately, the issue came back maybe two or three weeks after we resolved the issue. The problem is pretty much the same as before: the wuauclt.exe process, along with the svchost.exe or ccsvchost.exe, takes up a lot of cpu within a 20-30 minute duration after loading my desktop. The high fluctuations make my computer much slower and the response time is very choppy during the fluctuation period. Are there any additional steps that may resolve this issue? For what it's worth, I haven't messed with any of the settings on my computer or the programs you asked me to download since the time you helped me.

Re-run "Quick Startup" so we can see, if you accumulated some extra startups.

I un-checked:

Microsoft Works Update Detection
NvCplDaemon

The other programs were already un-checked, including one of the "NvCplDaemon" programs.

I've restarted my computer and the wuauclt.exe stayed around 8,000 for a few minutes and then completely went away. Un-checking those two programs seems to have helped, but I'm not sure if the problem will persist once again tomorrow or next week.
