XP boots up, no programs running CPU is 100%, ran spyware and antivirus, uninstalled and reinstalled, won't close down have to unplug. Please help cure my madness!Regards..... Neil.
Neil,open task manager and could you please tell us what process is causing the 100% usage.
Also can you tell us what AV and antispyware/malware programs you have ran so far.
ServerHost X is running at full pelt, adaware and avg are installed .... thanks
I think you are looking at idle, not what it's using
How do I stop it, nothing will open, PC won't switch off?
Possibly corrupted installation of an application which won't open, but chases around in loops jamming everything else.Can you pull the plug and reboot from cold into safe mode?or -I had a similar seize-up when a web design program became corrupted and didn't open. I ignored it and then found I couldn't use anything else except at a very very slow pace.Uninstalled/reinstalled the web design stuff ... once I realised what was happening and had stopped banging my head !
As Diemmess says,can you boot into safe mode (tapping f8 on startup).If so,does the system run ok.Try disabling your firewall briefly and check if this makes a difference.Alternatively you may like to try this.Start/Run/Type: msconfig/Startup/untick one by one to see if this stops the 100% cpu.This could be as stated above a corrupt installation that is trying to load on startup.It will be a matter of elimination.Also try running your AV in safemode as well as your antispyware apps.Also if you can download Ewido/Spybot/Defender/Asquared.A-squared click hereDefender/Spybot/Ewido click hereRun all these in safe mode if possible.
