off topic - svchost.exe using 100%CPU running wscntfy.exe RRS feed

  • General discussion

  •  I am been despirately trying to find a solution to my extremely slow computer.  One day it was fine the next it is slow.

    I have been just ending the process of svchost.exe from task manager as soon as I start up to prevent the problem.  However, when I ended the svchost process my sound stopped working.  I read post and I have deleted the sound blaster drivers and removed the Creative Audio Program that runs it.  I have even removed the sound card and currently running without it. 


    I still have the svchost.exe using 100% CPU constantly.  I downloaded Process Explorer and now it is showing

    wscntfy.exe is the culprit program.  I have run Registry Mechanie, McAfee virus scan, Adware scan and Spybot and the all come up clean.


    Can someone please help?
