I have been reading other theads dealing with the 100% CPU usage problem and followed the instructions to run: eventvwr.msc. In viewing the results in the "application" area I found red "x's" with the Following "source": Application hang. How do I correct this problem?

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go!

100% CPU issues seem all too common. Unfortunately, there are many different possible causes and solutions. I'd be happy to help you solve your problem if you're willing to bear with me as we go through each possible cause.

First up, let's gather some information:

Please download and run hijackthis Do a scan and then save a log. Take the log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post.

We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.

I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.

If you post a hijackthis log in this forum, several trusted techs will come to your house and eat all of your Ritz crackers, Cheeze Doodals and any sweet pickles you have in your fridge. We will also put our feet up on all of your coffee tables. This is no joke. We'll do it. It's not pretty. :whistling:

Looks like you've got a nasty infection! Along with a few minor ones too! Your major infection is known as SpywareBeGone. It may seem like a legitimate anti-spyware program, but it is not! Look at the following website for more information about SpywareBeGone:

To get disinfected
Please follow all the directions found here. After you get to step 5, if your problem is not resolved, post a HijackThis log in the Malware forum. If your problem persists after getting a clean bill of health from a malware expert, return here and we'll continue troubleshooting.

Keep in mind, the malware forum is very busy and can take up to 5 days to receive a reply. There is a special forum called The Waiting Room if you've been waiting for 3 or more days. You can put a link to your topic & a short description of your problem and someone will get with you soon.
