I'm at my wits end and hope a true tech guru can solve this problem for me. For some reason my cpu usage started spiking. The culprit is explorer.exe and sometimes services.exe. They will go from almost nothing to 50% or so every few seconds making playing any games or using applications fubar. I run AVG and have run numerious other virus/trojan programs per the link on this forum and other forums. My system is coming up clean.
Now here is the troubleshooting I've done thus far to try and isolate what could be causing this.
IF I do a selective startup and uncheck only system.ini the problem goes away 99% of the time. (only had it occur while doing this once)
IF I boot in safemode the issue does not occur.
I've disconnected my pc from the internet and the issue still occurs.
I've unchecked all my services and startup tabs and the issue will still occur.
I've attached a dxdiag.txt as well as a highjackthis log in hopes this might help you guys to advise me.
