Recently my computer has started to run extermely slow. I degfragged my HD and did the usual maintenance, uninstalling programs I wasn't using, and it didn't help. Doing simple tasks has the processor up at as much as 100%, CP usage when idle is from 8 to 26%.

I have an Athlon 1.4Ghz and 512 MB RAm so I know its not my copmuter. Any tweaks or ideas would be of great help.

Thanks a bunch!

my friend had a similar problem, his new system ground to a halt. Turned out scvhost was using 75% cpu, he just did a system restore and it was all better.
