I have a New(ish) Mesh PC and have just set it up for the first time with broadband connection.I have just been to Windows update and installed all the latest updates (minus SP2) and installed Mcafee virusscan and personal firewall.

There seess to be 2 strange processes that have requested internet acces - forboo.exe and servicelog.exe.

In the registry startup section they are listed against the following values:

Deejay (forboo.exe)
USB device (servicelog.exe)

Adaware and spybot have not picked them up and they sometimes cause the machine to slow down. CPU usage climbs to 100%. Both processes using roughly half cpu usage each.

If anyone has any ideas what this might be I would be most grateful.

Have seen Forboo mentioned in last few days on another forum - it behaves like a DOS attack hence why it slows down the machine.

One suggestion was to try this click here
