I just read the topic "fssm32.exe taking all CPU" because I am having the same type of trouble.

I'm running Windows XP and Charter High Speed Security Sweep. Throughout the day my computer locks up and everything takes ages to run, even changing windows can take several mins. When I go into task manager I see that a the file fssm32.exe is at the top of my CPU usage list and this seems to be what is blocking everything else. I have made sure that I have followed all the initial steps required to post the HIJackThis log files.

Any ideas? :)

Thanks in advance
