I have a celeron 600 system on a gigabyte ga6wmm7 board running 98se and I'm having a problem with severe surges in my CPU usage. According to system monitor it goes from about 10% to 100% in 3-4 second cycles, even with only systray and explorer running. JSSeeker was found by Norton a few days before this appeared and has been quarantined ever since. New modem drivers had been installed the day before, but have been removed, ram had been added earlier on the first day of the problem but has been taken out again. the hard drive has been scanned again with both norton and ad-aware and nothing has been found. the computer is barely usable because the pointer spends half of its time as the hourglass, and typing is a nigtmare as it takes a few seconds for text to appear on the screen. Does any one have any ideas on what might be causing this as it is doing my head in. many thanks in advance. c.k.
I hope ad-aware would take care of any spy-ware for me. It did find a few dataminer references but deleting them didn't change the situation, thanks though.
AMD 4 ever I have disabled all of the real player references from my start up menu using msconfig, but it hasn't made any difference. Do you know is there any way to maintain the functoinality of the player while geting rid of the problems?
Discoverd that one of my USB root hubs has gone awol from the system properties. The system looks like it was continuously trying to deal with the "unknown device" every few seconds. HAve forced it to recognise it as a problem device and all is back to normal, except that I have lost two of my USB ports - any body any good with them?? might start another thread? a big thanks goes out for the posts. c.k.
