The CPU goes really high, then stays at 100%

And i don't know how to use SpyBot.

Any other programs that are just as effective?

That can't be good...

"The CPU goes really high, then stays at 100%

Probably that high-end Chinese anti-virus software.

Spybot must be run manually (though at this point I doubt it'll run). If you can get rid of the "Chinese anti-virus", there's much better free offerings out there. Avast and AVG both have free versions (if you can download them), but you need to have a clean system first before installing...

in my opinion, you might better off running a factory restore, or reloading your windows, once windows is up and running install MS security essentials, you will not need other security...
you should not get 100% cpu unless your computer is very busy, what process's is running at 100%?
ctrl-alt-del / process /cpu, what process's are running that is taking up so much cpu?

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Hi,

I got similar problem with Windows 7 starter edition, after narrowing it down to the Wmiprvse.exe...

i'm currently using Window 7 starter edition, running on a Sony VAIO laptop, dual core cpu.
Found out that the WmiPrvSe.exe (NETWORK SERVICE) is taking about on average 50% of both cpu core utilization.

I ran the following command:
tasklist /M /fi "imagename eq Wmiprvse.exe"
and
tasklist /SVC /fi "imagename eq Wmiprvse.exe"

BUT, for both command, under the "Modules" and "Services" column, it just shows "N/A".
So I am unable to determine which processes is using the wmiprvse.

My laptop is not connected to any physical LAN, and I also tried turning-off/disabling both Wifi/Bluetooth, but that also does not bring the cpu utilization down.

Have also verified that the wmiprvse.exe is correctly pointing to the c:\windows\system32\wbem\wmiprvse.exe, and even the file timestamp seems the same as the rest of the *.exe files within the .\wbem directory.

Would anyone have any idea what actually could be the cause?
