Run Autoruns again and Uncheck these 4 that show up in Everything

JQSIEStartDetectorImpl Class
+ "SSVHelper Class"
+ "JavaQuickStarterService"
+ "AppMgmt"

These are just remnants. It won't fix anything but might as well get rid of them.

There is a Security Advisory for some of your files:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954157

I can't tell if they are the same versions that they are concerned with. You would have to check your files against the versions they mention.

I'm not seeing anything evil tho. Can I see another Process Explorer log?

I ran the FIX IT from Microsoft.com but I can't check it to see if it has affected anything. Everything's just too slow.

Run Process Explorer again. Hightlight the first svchost.exe and then File Save as to your desktop svchost.exe.txt Copy and paste the svchost.exe.txt file.

Also do this:

copy the next two lines:

tasklist.exe /m > \junk.txt
notepad \junk.txt

Copy and paste the text from notepad (or attach c:\junk.txt if it is too big)

Wasn't sure what you wanted me to do. I tried pasting it in cmd but it didn't recognize tasklist.exe

Turns out tasklist is not part of XP home. Just XP Pro. You can get it from

http://www.computerh...xp/tasklist.exe

However, your latest Process Explorer looks pretty good.

System Idle is 94.62 which means it should be fairly quick right now.

wuauclt.exe is 1.54 which probably just means it is talking to MS to see if there are any updates. Process Explorer was able to verify it this time.

What I wanted you to do looking at the old process explorer log was

find the top svchost.exe process and click on it. (The one in bold below)

System Idle Process 0 0 K 16 K
svchost.exe 712 144,308 K 128,496 K Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Microsoft Corporation (Verified) Microsoft Windows Component Publisher
explorer.exe 1280 0.92 20,268 K 9,324 K Windows Explorer Microsoft Corporation (Verified) Microsoft Windows Component Publisher


Then create a process Explorer log. This will give me a bit more info about svchost. As you can see we have a bunch of them. Each one does something differently - actually they each do a lot of things. Since one of them was using so much CPU I wanted to see what services it handled but now it's not acting up so not much point in it.

Tasklist /m would have given me some more info. I could compare the process numbers and see what modules are being loaded.

If you open IE and click on Tools or Safety you should see a windows update option. Click on it and see if there are any updates. IF so do they download and install OK?

Microsoft did not find any high priority updates. I took about 15 minutes to search. Sometimes a window will open quickly but then most internet windows take 3-4 mins to load. Is that a memory problem?
