What does it do when you disconnect it from the network? Is there network traffic every 5 seconds too? -George

I have tried a million and one things to try and get whatever is on my computer off. I ran Spybot Search and Destroy, Adawre SE Personal
CWShredder, HiJack This, and also downloaded about 5 different virus
tools from Symantec, ran them all and nothing was found as far as a virus was concerned. I am running Windows XP Pro behind a firewall with
Anti-Virus Corporate Edition. My pc cpu usage spikes to 100% about every
seconds, with svchost.exe being the main culprit. I have googled this and it comes up with about 5 billion possibilities about what it could be and how to fix it. Does anyone else know what this could be? BTW: I Also
into hkey_local_machine, Software, Microsoft, Windows, Current Version,
and removed anything that could possibly be starting up. If I unplug my network cable from the computer, it stops so it definately is a trojan of some sort. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've never not been
to get spyware, or a Trojan off of a pc, so this one is A #1 on the
annoying, why can't I figure this out list!
