I'm not sure why my computer all the sudden has this problem as of yesterday, while I look at the system processes it picks one application to submit 99% of the CPU. Here's a hijack log, I would be forever grateful if someone could help me figure this one out :whistling:

Thanks!! Right at the moment it's on Internet Explorer, I can't close it. But usually it's on whatever browser I have up which is usually Firefox.

Finally, the only way I can get my browser working is by starting the Computer up in safe mode, then reseting it. I'll run hijack this in a second, but 99% of my CPU's usage is being taken up by a program called wuauclt.exe.

I guess the new.net won't be deleted it says I need to download spybot or something to get rid of it. I actually just ran two different programs to check for spyware before I came here, apparently they didn't catch them.

Please do not post hijack this logs in the 2000 forum unless asked to. If you need assistance, please follow these instructions.

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and post your log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Also, your windows is not updated to SP1. Before you post in the malware forum, make sure you follow these instructions.

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx
Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

Let me tell you a little about the "progress" I've made since I first posted this. First off by accident I found something from newdotnet in my internet protocol, which apparently wasn't picked up by my spyware programs. I finally got rid of that and am now at least able to run my computer fine in safe mode. Still when I boot Windows up it takes like 15 minutes to do so, and is still using 100% of my cpu. It took me a while to get my computer stable enough to install sp1, but it's done ... any suggestions as to what next?
