I know this has been spoken about in numerous posts , and i have read them but none have been of any new help.
Svchost runs at 100% and have tracked this problem down to when internet explorer hangs then crashes. Plus sometimes explorer won't display internet sites using .asp
The svchost which runs at 100% is runnign the service rpcss.exe service so ending this paticular task will result in ending the rpc service. Thus creating the same effect as the msblast worm.
I'm damn sure it has somethign to do with internet explorer. I've virus scanned and used numerous ad removal software to see if anything like that was effecting it. I had all the latest secrurity patches and sevice pack before this all happened.
i'm running xp so anything i might not have tried would be grateful
p.s. i have reinstalled ie6
i best add sometimes it shows at running at 100% but it isn't due to all programs run sweet but on other times it's dog slow. But all internet activity is reduced i expect this has somethign to do with the rpc service.
