Hi, I just reformated my computer two days ago, and the first day the computer was working fine but ever since I put in the anti virus programs the computer has acted slow. The first day of the antivirus programs the computer was fine, but yesterday it started to go really slow. My interent is also going really slow and Ive noticed that Svchost.exe and tmproxy.exe are taking up alot of 100% of the CPU usage of the computer at times. Most of the time.

What anti-virus product are you using?
Discribe as much as you can in your posts as we can only work with the information you give us :)

Can you try to boot into safe mode:
  • Reboot your machine.
  • After you hear the first beep keep tapping F8.
  • You'll get a menu up and should be able to select safe mode.

Does it still act slow? (Internet not accecible.)
If that does speed up a bit then I belive we can find this in either the startup or the services.
Ok, so lets find the crulpit!
Note: This process might take a while and requires multiple reboots.
  • Go to start and hit "run"
  • In the white box type "msconfig"
  • A window will pop up, go to the Startup Tab.
  • In the bottom right, select "Disable All"
  • Please reboot the computer.
  • Follow steps 1 to 3 again.
  • Now turn on 1 or 2 startups and reboot again.
  • Keep doing this until your problem comes back.
  • Once the problem comes back it should be the program you turned on Last.
  • Please tell me which program this was and how the whole process went.

(It is also possible ofcourse that it still keeps giving the problem. Report back and we'll move on to the services.)

Olrik
