Specs: Windows XP
Hi there,

my computer is running slower and slower since last week plus some processes show in task manager are also duplicate. I think i am having a similar problem with someone has asked before.

ati2evxx.exe - 2 times
avp.exe - 2 times
CLI.exe - 2 times
svchost.exe - 7 times

Also, memory usage and CPU usage are often at high level, 70%+.

I have installed NOD32 trial version last month while my kaspersky was expired. Then i have my kaspersky back early this month. I've re-installed the NOD32 afterward.

I have no idea where the problem comes from. Please help.

Thanks in advance.

All of the processes that you list are valid processes.

ati2evxx.exe is installed when using an ATI video card and is part of the display system.

AVP.exe is part of the Kaspersky Antivirus Scanner.

CLI.exe is also part of the ATI display system, more specifically the Catalyst Video Drivers.

and svchost.exe is a normal part of the Windows Operating system.

Not only that, but for the processes that you listed, it is perfectly normal for there to be multiple versions of the same process running. This is due to where the processes are "spawned" from and what account and privilege level they need to run as.

I am more concerned that you have 2 antivirus programs running on your machine at once. This is never a good idea, as having more than one program running and scanning in real time can cause the machine to slowdown as well as preventing either from effectively detecting an infection if there should be one.

Please pick one antivirus program and uninstall the others for best operation. Once you have done this, reboot your machine and perform a full scan with the antivirus program that you have chosen.

Please let me know if it detects any problems or if your machine still seems sluggish after this. Also let me know if you have any further questions.
