svchost.exe is hanging

On one of my XP Pro machines, the svchost.exe is using 99% of CPU!! If I login to Administrator, I am able to kill the process, but this is only a temporary fix. Once the machine is re-booted, the problem occurs once again. This is a SYSTEM process. What can I do to fix this??

Sorry to ask a silly question, but are you sure it's svchost and not system idle process?

No, I'm sure it's not the system idle process. :rolleyes: That's ok though, I always asume the stupid things first also. ;)

Here's a screen shot just for verification though.

This system is a Gateway that we purchased a few months back, so I tried using the On-line Chat help on Gateway's site. The only thing they came up with is that they told me to run scan disk and defrag. :rolleyes: If this was 95/98/Me, I would believe that this would be the solution, but this is XP Pro for gods sake. I ran defrag for the hell of it, but no change. :( I may have to roll this sucker back to factory and re-install the applications.

GOT IT!

I couldn't do anymore with Remote Desktop to fix this problem, so I had to got to the site to fix it. I explored many options before I went, and I was down to 2.

#1) run Last Know Good Configuration

or

#2) run System Restore


Well, #1 was the solution. An easy fix, but spent alot of time trying to solve it. :rolleyes:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
