Dear Techies,

I've been having this problem for a while now. My computer is terribley ow. It takes 10-12 minutes to boot, and every application I try running takes between a minute to 5 just to load. I've tried running Adaware, Spyware Doctor, AVG, and the computer seems clean.

One important feature - the CPU usage is always at 100% or close. csrss.exe mainly hoggs the cpu at a range of 5-80%. I have tried switching off some services related with svhost, (3 svhost.exe are running at the moment) but it still won't do. the computer is slow.

I am posting a Hijack This log.

One problem you have that is easy to solve: remove one of you resident AV scanners, now. Very impt to have only one.
Start hijackthis, select Scan Only, place checkmarks against all the entries listed below that still exist, and then press Fix Checked.

It appears that you have a vundo infection, or traces of one, so please rename hijackthis.exe to imabunny.exe - this is important.
==Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop from http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=4
Restart your system in Safe Mode.
Double-click VundoFix.exe to start it. Click the Scan for Vundo button.
When the scan completes click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files - click YES
Your desktop will then go blank as the process of removing Vundo starts.
When completed it will prompt that it will restart your computer - click OK.
Note: It is possible that VundoFix encountered a file it could not remove.
In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above instructions starting from "Click the
Scan for Vundo button." when VundoFix appears at reboot.
Post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt plus a new HijackThis log.
