I am doing repairs on a p/c that had Window Me as it operating system but was converted over to XP PRO sp1. This p/c has very high CPU times running at 100% most times. Looking at task manager I am seeing the svchost.exe system file running at 89 to 100 % all the time. Cannot do a soft boot due to usage. What could it be, a virus? When I boot in safe mode system runs normally.
