Get Process Explorer from Sysinternals.com (it's free), install,
double-click the offiending svchost instance and check the threads
running in there. This should help in finding what's causing this

You know, it might be a valid thread that's doing this. Maybe you
have some performance meters running?

Hello All,  

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 Edition, CWShredder, HiJack This, and also downloaded
about 5 different virus removal 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 Symantec Anti-Virus
Corporate Edition.  My pc cpu usage spikes to 100% about every 5
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 went into hkey_local_machine, Software,
Microsoft, Windows, Current Version, Run, 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. Ive never not been able to
get spyware, or a Trojan off of a pc, so this one is A #1 on the
annoying, why cant I figure this out list!
