I recently booted up my laptop but it was booting slow and was unresponsive.
I started the taskmanager and it showed that the program dcagentservice.exe was using 99% of the CPU
Is this an integral part of Windows XP?
Can I kill it?

Hi jackstraw42 and :) Some info below courtesy of google;

Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as dcagentservice.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the dcagentservice.exe process on your pc whether it is pest.

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will assist you.
