Laptop running v slow. I have noticed on task manager a program called WinXP disablezeroc... running using 98% of my CPU. By ending process it seemed to temp improve things. Questions What is it, Where has it come from, Will it come back if so how can i get rid of it. I am running Norton antivirus 2005. Many Thanks

Judging by the name, it is intended to control or disable Wireless Zero Configuration.

Two questions arise from this; 1) WZC can be controlled in the usual manner from Services, and 2) Services does not contain as standard anything by the name that you mention.

So I suspect that it is not a native Windows service.
