  1. Hello,

    I have a Compaq Presario with

    Amd athlon 64 processor 3500+
    2.9 ghz,960 mb of ram
    it has windows xp media center with sp2

    the problem is,the cpu usage is always at 100% and the comp very slow.

    i have looked at other threads but they didnt really help
    the process that seems to be using the most is "svchost.exe"

    any ideas?

    That certainly sounds like a spyware/malware issue & so I will move your thread to the proper area. While you're here take the time to read the sticky threads in the Security forum & follow the advice/walkthroughs.
