Whenever I start up my computer these two processes take up most of my CPU. Sometimes it is just Svchost.exe and sometimes it is just fssm32.exe. but sometimes they both share most of the CPU. On most startups Svchost.exe takes up 99% of my CPU and I have to end that task in order for my computer to not be totally locked up. If I ever try to end the fssm32.exe process it just starts up again and immediately takes over my entire cpu. Please Help! I have posted a hijackthis log but I have no idea what to do with the results or if I need to do something else to fix it. Thanks in advance!

Hi trumpetcat...

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions you'll find there.

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-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

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