My reason for installing SP2 was this......
My USB ports have stopped working...... no response when I plug in any device... nor are they detected. This was BEFORE sP2 (I was running plain WinXP Pro 2002). This issue hasn't been solved either.
I have all the latest drivers properly installed. No "!" under Device Manager

Download CWShredder from http://www.trendmicro.com/cwshredder/
Use the Fix button.


Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:
http://www.atribune....oads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads....org/l2mfix.exe
Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot.
>From the l2mfix folder on your desktop, double click l2mfix.bat and select option #2 for Run Fix by typing 2 and then pressing enter, then press any key to reboot your computer. After a reboot, your desktop and icons will appear, then disappear (this is normal). L2mfix will continue to scan your computer and when it's finished, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it back into this thread, along with a new hijackthis log.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other files in the l2mfix folder unless you are asked to do so!

Before I read you reply , I installed and ran MS UPHC (dehiver) following instructions in another thread. It is configured to run automatically.

After the l2mfix scan, The Zone Alarm systray icon has disappeared

I'm just informing you of everything going on.

My computer has another problem. USB ports are not working.

Doubleclick:
G:\ZoneAlarm\zlclient.exe

Let me know if that brings back the ZA icon.

Was the problem with the USB ports present before?
If so, I think you'd be better off starting a new thread in the Hardware forum.

ZA icon is back.
CPU usage still high . Shutdown / logoff have sped up.
I'm attaching the screenshots of task manager. (task manager1.jpg, task manager2.jpg)
Notice it shows my total physical memory as 228 MB. Available is a paltry 37MB and System Cache is about 97 MB. Both don't add up equally. Where is the rest? It wasn't like this before this lm2fix scan atleast.

Also see the CPU usage of the processes.
System Idle shows 20 - 25 % while System shows 75 - 80 %. Earlier, when it was normal, on Ctrl-ALt-del it showed 0 for everything and 99 for System Idle.
Why is system taking up so much?

I've already started a thread for USB. A person called Samm had dealt with a similar problem before. But I think it wasn't resolved.

Anyway...... abput this one, I have a suggestion:

Before SP2, when I used to browse gpedit, services etc etc, it used to say "WMI adapters not found", when things were normal.

Now after SP2, WMI is active. Could it be that WMI is hogging resources? Or could it be that SP2 has started some unnecessary processes?

Just a suggestion, after all you guys are the gurus.

Since System consists of drivers and services mostly, this could be realted to the problem you are having with the USB ports.

I'll leave it up to the Hardware gurus for now.
They know where to find me if they think it's malware. :tazz:

Hey wait...... are you leaving ? But it ain't fixed yet!!!!! Also, in the USB thread I started, I haven't mentioned this problem, because this started after SP2. The USB issue was present before.

BTW, non administratr accounts are taking long to log off / shutdown, and are hanging.
My admin account is better.

I'm disabling WMI and seeing. I don't need ICS / firewall, RPC, etc. I got ZA.
