After loading Windows XP SP3 PC within two minutes using Task Manager I can see a svchost that is using 99% cpu and I have made a note of its PID.

I have run tasklist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" and this shows

Image Name PID Services
========================= ====== =============================================
svchost.exe 752 AudioSrv, Browser, CryptSvc, Dhcp, dmserver,
ERSvc, EventSystem,
FastUserSwitchingCompatibility, helpsvc,
lanmanserver, lanmanworkstation, Netman,
Nla, RasMan, Schedule, seclogon, SENS,
SharedAccess, ShellHWDetection, srservice,
TapiSrv, Themes, TrkWks, W32Time, winmgmt,
wscsvc, wuauserv, WZCSVC

If I end the process for this PID I then have to start the Windows Audio Service manually.

I have attached my OTL.txt file from an OTL Quick Scan.

Any ideas how to remove this rogue svchost?
