recently my computer has been running incredibly slow and now randomly freezes, i opened up task manager and noticed there were three instances of svchost running, one using 98-100% of my cpu all the time. when i first noticed the problem it was re-directing me to ad crap everytime i clicked a link, i ran comodo and got rid of some stuff and the re-direct stopped but svchost remains. the only temporary fix is to terminate it in tskmgr. I would like to actually get rid of this thing. i am using XP.
