computer problems
Mar 22, 2012

I have a problem with my computer that I just can't fix. Two issues mainly, possibly related. The first is my browser keeps getting hijacked. I'll click on a link and end up somewhere else. Happens both in Firefox and IE. The second is poor performance and eventual freezing. My CPU usage keeps spiking at 100% usage. There's a process called svchost.exe running that just keeps using memory at a progressive rate. A known problem, which I've found several references to, but none of the fixes I've tried have worked. I've lost track of how many virus/malware type programs I've downloaded trying to solve these problems. I'm running Windows XP (yes, still) Any suggestions?
