  1. Hi,

    This started a while ago and is occuring with more and more frequency lately. Every once in a while whatever I am doing on my, music prgs, or even just internet will lag up quite a bit...and when I go look at the processes under Tsk Mngr everything in there is using between 1000 and 10,000 k insteasd of the regular 100 to 1000(with some exceptions of course) this will sometime usually stop on its own after quite a while, but even rebooting doesn't change it...its just switches back and forth on its own....kinda long winded sorry...any ideas...please.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It`s probably a good idea to check your system for viruses/spyware etc.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment, into this thread, only after doing the above.

    If it turns out, that you do have a malware problem, I will move this thread to the security and the web forum.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O18 - Protocol: msnim - {828030A1-22C1-4009-854F-8E305202313F} - "C:\PROGRA~1\MSNMES~1\msgrapp.dll" (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    I don`t think any of the above would cause your problem.

    Regards Howard :)
