When I reboot and check processes my XP PC works find and shows 98% of cpu allocated to idel process, which seems right. After a while or if left on overnight the svchost.exe process alloacted to system is consuming 98% of CPU and all PC functions are really slow.

No other effects though. Any ideas what could be causing this - it has only started happening during the last week. :tazz:

If your PC schost.exe us taking up 90% of the cpu and you get an ip address of 192 or 169..... range , unable to connec to the internet then you have been hijacked. here is what i did which worked. :tazz:



well you download hijack,reg fix and , kill srv, and netfix progs. you then start your pc in safe mode and then install these progs.After the installation is done you then run all these progs one after the other. also download free adware remove prog and make sure to run these in the safe mode. Onec thats done you reboot ur pc to a normal mode and run hijack progs again. this should fix the piggyback ride prog that took over scvhost.exe. lease and renew ip add. After the pc boots properly. Do not open IE, make sure to install norton and update the files right away. After installing the norton do a scan and then update the dat files. You may need to reboot the pc. It should be working fine after that . Let me know if u encounter something like this

thanks
