I have over 100 processes running on this computer - I have tried to restore to an earlier date. I run windows XP pro and this system is choking. I have one program in particular called osoa.exe that is taking up 95 to 100% of the CPU processes. I need to know if this is a valid ops exe or something I should delete.... I also want to know how I can reduce the number of exe files. I am not sure which one are real .....

Here are some of the exe files running - is this spyware or real processes????

all are exe files - just typed shorter for simplicity....

osoa ( This one on the processes list takes up 95+% for CPU Usage)

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide. Also see this post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
