I am running Win XP Pro. SP1 I just got done formatting and reinstalling windows on my box. I felt this was necessary because for some reason "system" in Task Manager was taking up 68-72% of my CPU. Although I had NOD 32 (with latest defs) and Zone Alarm Suite (with latest defs) installed they were coming up with nothing on full system scans (archives and everything else were scanned). I always used firefox to go on the net except to update windows. My previous install had all the latest updates including SP2 as soon as I had installed windows the last time.
This time the second that windows started up for the very first time I checked Task manager and noticed system was still hogging CPU. So I Installed HijackThis from my storage partition. Ran a scan. Installed the driver so my Ethernet port would work. Installed Firefox from my storage partition and then posted this message using firefox. Here is my log:

This is driving me crazy. I haven't been doing the quick formats during install either. I was deployed for 4 mo. and this is what I had to come home to. I think I learned my lesson though :4-thatsba DISCONNECT YOUR HDD WHEN GONE SO FAMILY MEMBERS DONT SCREW UP YOUR SYSTEM!!! -razz:

I really appreciate your help. Ive exhausted myself trying to correct this problem the last few days so even the smallest bit of insight is a great help.
