  1. After i got rid of a trojan and installed zone alarm suite, my system idle process has been hogging up a good % of my cpu and noticeably slowing it down.

    HJT Log Help

    Heres my hjt log.
    I have been having an issue of system idle process hogging my
    cpu usage, and it is noticeably slowing my system down.
    Right after i got rid of a trojan and installed zone alarm
    suite it started happening.

    Your HJT log looks clean.

    Just let HJT fix this entry.

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winkve32 - winkve32.dll (file missing)

    Regards Howard :)

    Just a quick note - The system idle process cannot possibly hog resources on a PC. It's impossible. The figure you see next to system idle process is the amount of CPU NOT being used.

    I have noticed a noticable slowdown though after getting rid of a trojan and installing ZA.
    I noticed some windows dont close immediately, instead they take a couple sceonds, and before they were instant.

    First get rid of Zonealarm suite and use the free Zonealarm instead.

    I don`t know what the sound issues are that you speak of, but reinstalling your sound drivers should fix that.

    Download and run the Cleaner programme from HERE It`ll get rid of a lot of rubbish on your system.

    Use msconfig to stop any startup items you don`t want or need.

    Run a disk defrag.

    Regards Howard :)
