I assume that you hasve anti-virus installed and up to date?

Check for spyware click here and click here

Which version of Windows?

click on the processes tab, and tell us what progs are using the cpu time.

In other words How many programs starting at boot go Start\Run Type MSCONFIG go to start tab and see how many have a tick in box

  sorefingers 22:22 07 Jun 2004

about 20....six of which are Sychost.exe

  woodchip 22:24 07 Jun 2004

Remove all the ticks and reboot and see how it goes

  ahales42 22:27 07 Jun 2004

press ctrl,alt,del click task manager and then processes. this will tell you what processes are using your cpu time

Is that "svchost" - please confirm.

Presumably it has not always done this?

20 running processes is not many for W XP.

  sorefingers 22:32 07 Jun 2004

total 26 processes....WOODCHIP - remove ticks from where?

  sorefingers 22:34 07 Jun 2004

msconfig is not responding...

  sorefingers 22:38 07 Jun 2004

If I start full system recovery - will this get rid of possible spyware, virus's etc?
