Things, got really slow, lately, even Outlook... I looked at Task Manager (alt-ctl-del) and found one of these PID's at 99%.... I rebooted, and after a few minutes, another one popped up...I tried 'End Process' on the looping one, and things ran better.. and, looping PID never came back... until I rebooted...I suspect a gremlin but my virus scan didn't find anything... and my Firewall isn't supposed to let stuff like that in....


I came here looking for RKill, in hopes that a rootkit could be eliminated, but I'm definitely open to suggestions...

Use process hacker for search exactly which process is using all the CPU. This week 2 computers both using windows xp have an issue with the windows update. Disable windows update and restart fix the high CPU usage.
