Hello all. Broni tried to help with this one in another forum (here) but said i should open a new thread here.


The problem is that when i boot up, svchost.exe (and specifically a thread called wuaueng.dll) uses up 50% of the cpu. After a while another service joins in called wzcsldr2.exe and uses up the other 50% so if you do the math, my computer slows down to a crawl. What i noticed is that after a while (around half an hour) wzcsldr2 stops using 50% and goes back to normal while the svchost needs at least and hour or two to get back to normal. They go up again at times during the day though. I have tried using rootkit removal tools MBAM and online scanners, cleaned whatever they found but the problem persists. Also, there are errors on startup having window names of the programs running on startup (not all) telling me that 

"the procedure entry point_except_handler4_common could not be located in dynamic link library msvcrt.dll"


Please if someone is to help with this one, it would be helpful to live somewhere in europe, That is because of the time-difference i will have to wait till its morning to see the replies to my answers, not being able to do more than one step at a day. That is IF the step goes as planned...

Hello again!

I haven't heard from you in 5 days. Therefore, I am going to assume that you no longer need our help, and close this topic.

If you do still need help, please send a Private Message to any Moderator within the next five days. Be sure to include a link to your topic in your Private Message.

Thank you for using Bleeping Computer, and have a great day!
