Hello, was wondering if anyone could help. My computer is nackered I think! MY CPU is at a constant 100% and I have to wait about two hours (no joke yesterday it was 4hrs) before i can use it! SPBBCSvc.exe & CCEVTIMGR.EXE are the two processes using all my CPU stuff. It all began last week when windows updated, I dont normaly allow it but thought might as well, the windows live and msn were installed. I then began getting pop-ups about windows problems and all that sort of stuff, also stuff from em.gat-network. I never used to get this suff and dont know much about comuting so I downloded google pack with norton antivirus05, i was runnin Az antivirus and had no probs, but deleted it as per nortons request.

So my questions:

1.How do i remove Norton? it has no uninstall feture

2.Should I just remove windowsXPhome and reinstall, if so how do do that?

3.Where can I gt a good antivirus and spyware/badware blocke?

Thanks for your help :thumbsup:

You can remove Norton through the Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel however after removing the software that way you will want to edit all references of Norton and Symantec from your registry in order to be sure that it is completely gone. It would be a good idea to back up the registry before you try this since if you are not sure what you are doing you could really screw up your system.
Option B is probably the safest way to fix the problem. You can reinstall Windows as long as you have the original CD. Put the CD in the drive and restart your computer watch for the prompt to press any key to boot from CD and then you are in business! When booting from the CD you will be asked if you want to reinstall windows ar repair a windows installation. If you choose to repair you won't lose any data you have on your computer but it will put windows back to where it was at the first install so you will have to do all the Windows updates again.
Your call but there are your options.

SPBBCSVC.EXE is a part of the Symantec Internet security suite but CCEVTIMGR.EXE...?

Unless you recognize that file, I suggest you submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of CCEVTIMGR.EXE and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.

Where can I gt a good antivirus and spyware/badware blocke?

Are you sure it not ccevtmgr.exe which is Symantec Event Manager?

Are you sure you completely removed Norton. Please use this guide to remove norton completely.

Please go over the links quietman gave you to make your choise of antivirus. I use AVG Free (check my sig) and it has kept me clean for over two years now.

To remove viruses you have to utilise anti virus.
