  • Svchost.exe using up all my CPU on Windows XP?

    I'm running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 on this hardware setup:
    AMD Athlon 64 3500+ 2.20GHz 2GB Ram Asus A8V Deluxe Motherboard Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS
    Basically when I enter windows it is very slow. I enter task manager -> processes and see svchost.exe has astronomically high cpu usage to the extent it slows everything else down.
    I've tried doing this: http://www.technibble.com/how-to-fix...u-memory-leak/
    I've also updated everything recommended by windows update. I have scanned my PC for viruses using latest/updated AVG antivirus - it found nothing. I have found disabling automatic updates does not help also.
