    Ok, my computer has started running very slow. I did ctl-alt-delete and there are like 12 svchost processes running. Is this normal. It seems like somewhere I saw that these could be a virus. I have install spybot search and destroy, ccleaner and winpatrol. Any advice on what I should do next, my memory isn't even close to full.
    thanks

  2. could be 12 without a virus. run malwarebytes, superantispyware, and maybe avast free antivirus. to check for rootkits, look up gmer and how to run it.

    It can be normal, depends on what your system is running. My main system has a lot of svchost sessions.

    Have you run Spybot and CCleaner? What did they find?

    I think this has something to do with norton antivirus/internet security.
    Try googleing it.

  8. use task manager to identify what is using the cpu cycles. control-alt-delete. click on the processes tab, and then click twice on cpu to bring the highest users to the top.

  10. maybe something is doing a brackground scan? is your antivirus/am/at set to scan automatically? and that hp program, are you using your all-in-one for something, alerts popping up?

  13. Svchost.exe is a generic exe that runs windows services and DLLs

    You can use Process Explorer to find out what each svchost is running

  15. Yes once you have it running, you can hover over each of the svchost files and it will tell you what it's running. You can also double click it and open up and it will tell you what it's running.

    However, if I were you, I would download and install SuperAntiSpyware. Then I would update it (it can take 3 times to get all the updates)
    I would then do a full scan

    Thanks there were about 20 files including 6 trojans! I don't know if it's running better yet, working on it. One more question. I know before I had went to msconfig and stopped some services to speed up my start up and computer. Does anyone know which ones I have to have running?
    thanks again

  17. windows doesn't require anything in the startup tab. BUT your antivirus, a/s, a/t, video, audio, and some copy protected software do need things in there. it just depends on what programs you have.
