Whenever I try to open an internet browser like explorer or firefox on my main computer, which runs Windows XP the browser won't show up, i get nothing. When I bring up the task manager it shows no applications running, but under processes it will show "firefox.exe" or "iexplorer.exe" running with high CPU usage, around about 50. The CPU usage of my computer will also shoot up to around 100% when I try running them too. I've tried running a virus scan, but even after removing some adware and spyware it still continues to act this way.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the
START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own.
If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
