I need help. When I start-up my PC from cold (Off) and select my profile, it then goes slow anter about 20 sevconds. I check the Task Master and it shows SVCHOST.EXE on the user name NETWORK SERVICES showing 100% memory usage. I can end the program and then everything else carries on. If I leave it for about 4 minutes it will eventually sort itself out. When I end tast the SVCHOST.EXE it shows later that theres one running with no problems. Please can someone advise me of what to do. I have run adware & viruses programs but its still there...

Ive used; Zona Alarm Pro, AVG, NTSs Netguard & Now McAfee. Noe have identified it as a virus & i'm getting rather sick of having tu shut down SVCHOST.EXE each time.

Have you checked Event Viewer after starting comp?

I suggest that you download HijackThis from click here Run this progarm. This will create a folder, 'C:\HijackThis', extract the program into that folder and then open the folder for you. It will also create a shortcut on your desktop.

Open HijackThis and click on 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'. Copy the log and post it on the Malware Removal forum click here

Do NOT tick anything or click on 'Fix'.

'progarm' should be 'program'.
