I am using Windows XP on a Apple Macbook using Boot Camp.

My computer is always getting 100% CPU Usage. I have reformatted my computer once after I had this problem. However, this problem doesn't seems to go away. The problem doesn't appear straight away after I have reformatted my computer. It appears when I reinstalled some applications like MSN and Winamp. I assumed that the problem have got to do with applications that have auto pop up interfaces like MSN.

I did try going to Task Manager to kill the processes which have high percentages but it doesn't work. I also found out I had a process which is called "hkcmd.exe". My friend told me it's a virus therefore I deleted it but it doesn't help solve the problem too.

Restarting and shut down of the computer have also became a problem.

I thank you in advance for your help.
