My laptop seems to be seized up.  I can't seem to open or run anything and I open task manager and see svchost.exe is using up 100% of my cpu.

 

I treid ending the process and that didn;t allow me to open anything wither. It will start to open IE but it just shows a black page saying "conecting" but never gets anywhere.

 

This is an older Compaq Presario R3000 running Win XP sp 3.

 

I can't even run malware bites or and antivirus program.

Every other time windows has been upating I see an icon in the tool bar that alrets me to it.  I don't see that icon now and I've been trying to get somewhere with this thing for a couple hours.

 

I don't think it's an update slow down as they don't take that long.

could not publish using Speccy.

I'm running minitoolbox now but it seems that it's hung up on getting ipconfig.

 

Been on that for a little while now but I'll ket it run and see if it doesn't come through.
