Win7 CPU Usage Always at 100% when on the Net

Specs: Windows 7, 3.0Gs
****PLEASE HELP!*****


O.K. I have been at this for bout a month and grown very frustrated.

Here it is! I have an HP laptop that uses AMD Sempron M120 2.10GHZ, Windows7 64bit OPS and 3.0g Ram(2.75 usable)

Now! here's the issue Once the computer is fully booted the cpu is running at its normal usage, and memory would be less then 900MB. However, Once I log onto the Internet the CPU shoots up to 100% and the Ram goes up to 1.05G! ! So, I've been looking all day everyday on the internet trying to find a solution to the issue I am using MCAFEE Premium security, I've ran dozens of scans and it comes back that it was ok it found some viruses and quarantine them. But still every time I connect to the internet it goes to 100%. I use the cricket broadband modem card for access to the internet. I've done a lot of things one thing I have found out is when I go to the resource tab in the task manager and click on the CPU tab, it has at the top of the list svchost.exes so what I did in the pass was to suspend the process once I do this the cpu goes back down and runs find. I even download the procexp64 to see if it would tell me any thing about this svchost.exe! Nothing I repeat nothing Im a little computer savvy but not an expert! I even used the services.mcs to see if something was on auto-run or change what runs when the cpu starts up. I came across background intelligent transfer. when I stop this, the computer stops running at 100% but the internet afterwards runs entirely slow! I even download the CCleaner to see if this would help Nothing I even gotten the Avira Cnet had stated that it is great to have for malware and spyware ran this too! still nothing someone out there please help me! Im stuck and dont know what to do! Also, I've used the Revo unistall witch I belive its great when it comes to the registry Use the Hunter mode and realize when I use the Hunter mode and hover it over the svchost.exe in the task manager resource screen a lot of programs pop each individually when I click the stop auto run so at this point I'm stuck please help guys and gals! please help!

try sophos root anti kit (free)
try malwarebytes (free)

if these two dont find what appears a viral infection, then i would advise to save all your files, and run a factory restore.. * University of Cambridge

Recovery Disks and Partitions

If you do not have your recovery disks with you (unfortunately frequently the case) then the following links may be of assistance to you, depending on the make of your machine. Be aware that unless you have already backed up your datamany recovery disks will completely wipe your hard disk. You will normally be charged for new recovery disks.

Some manufacturers provide recovery partitions (a hidden portion of your hard disk where a copy of the original system configuration is stored), which largely perform the same function, some do not. Recently several manufacturers have ceased to supply recovery disks and expect you to write your own from software supplied on the portable. By the time you are reading this document, this is probably not an option.

Note: Trying to recover your OS and applications without your recovery disk(s) can cause a lot of problems, depending on the partitioning of your hard disk(s) and your ability to find appropriate drivers for all your devices.
HP/Compaq

HP supply a recovery partition which can be accessed by repeatedly pressing F10 at startup

See help and support for performance monitor. I forget what Windows 7 calls it now but it will provide detailed information on all parts of the system.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

...AND dump McAfee and get a good lean antivirus program. (It's a hog all by itself, and NO, Norton is not any better).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

If you have IE add-ons, disable them and see if the issue still continues when you go out to internet.

OK guys and gals, I did download the malwarebytes' to run a scan and everything seems to go ok, but in a little bit it boosts right back up to the same ol' 100% so I used a good registry cleaner and looks like its ok.... for now! as far as MCAFEE Im so ready to toss this crappy ass security! tire of it running hard in the background but thanks to all who supported the topic and gave your input, if you have any more suggestion please post thanks!

If your computer is O.K. after you cleaned it with a registry cleaner, then why complain about Mcaffee since it turns out to be not the cause of the problem.

Anyway, you can ditch whatever you want.

be careful with registry cleaners..they often do more harm than good.

MS security is a fast efficient and free anti virus, takes up little resources and works well.

however with so many irritating issues you may as well just do a clean install and keep your machine cleaner for the future.
