Hey guys

I searched all over the net for a solution to my problem, i dunno what to do..so heres the problem : I am using XP sp2 and my CPU usage reached 100% usage a month ago...it reaches 100 % then drops to 50% - 4 then might go back to 40% 100....etc...and my PC becomes slower by the day it has been like this up to now...first the sound starts to become slightly slow so i cant watch movies anymore..and when i play any game it becomes slower...till i reach the point where i have to format C and install XP again...i install XP by a rate of 2 or 3 times a week..
I tried the following :

1- Scaning with KAV : no result
2- Scaning with spybot : some adwares and spywares : removed but the problem is still there
3- Checking manualy for winlogon virus : no result
4- scaning with stinger : no results
5- Even removed my sound driver : no use
6- checked the taskmanager process list, nothing weird there except that i have 4 SVCHOST, one of them is
using 32,000 K mem, and also after a while i find a process called NMbigmonitor.exe, but it doesnt appear unless it has been 2 or 3 days since the last XP install ( maybe its a coincidence..i dunno)


everything is becoming slower , HELP GUYS !

hi Sergo, and welcome to Geekstogo.com

Can you clarify that you mean NMbgmonitor.exe not NMbigmonitor.exe?

NMbgmonitor.exe is a process run by Nero Home

Whenthe computer is slowing down, is there any evidence of any program running at a high CPU usage?

Thanks

Glen

Are you running spyware doctor?

That is a process owned by that software?

I would recommend running, Adaware, and avg antispyware!

But for a full system clean, please try going tot eh malware forum, the experts there will be able to help you better than i can!

If you are still having problems once they have given you a full bill of health please post back!

thanks

Glen

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
