    ....before the damn thing starts to run low on 'virtual mem'. I mean common, is there any reason for svchost.exe to require 330,000 k before it starts to spawn?

    And the damn thing will run sluggish as hell after it wakes back up from the screensaver mode.


    I don't have the time to reinstall the OS, I need a fix soooon :(

    2.6ghz, 512 mem, 120 gig HD

    Sounds like a system with a virus or tons of spywhere.

    Reinstalling the OS might be quicker than a fix.

    No virus, I've checked almost a dozen times since I bought this machine.

    Quick link to spyware removal prog?

    svchost should never get to 300 megs. Think about it, not even super pigs like Access and Outlook get that big - not even 10% of that
