High cpu useage on wireless network

I just set up a wireless Linksys router on my network. My desktop is hardwired to it and my laptop with xp pro sp1 is connected wireless. It works great except for the high cpu useage on the laptop. Services.exe is hogging a lot of cpu and the fan on the laptop keeps coming on. When I unplug the wireless adapter the cpu goes back to idle (1-5%) and the fan stays off.

I'm wondering if sp2 will solve this problem. Any ideas?

High is 40-100%....continually oscilating between 40 and a 100. I swept the machine for virus's, trojans and spyware and found nothing. When I disconect the wireless adapter, cpu goes down to 1-5%.

You don't have a bunch of stuff checking for updates like jusched.exe or realsched.exe etc... ? Maybe you need to make your page file a little larger. More memory? What does a Hijack log show?

Thanks for the reply. I'll look into some of that stuff. Right now I'm working on a friends xp machine.
