Need Help!? cpu running high locks me out?
Hi does anyone know what could be going on here, my pc usually runs smoothly...Ive been having this issue since last week and tried calling support and chat to no avail but anyway... I dont know if its norton or not after my pc is idle a bit (no notices norton is working are present) but I cant get back in my pc I can move mouse about adn open norton but not much else besides task manager.
cpu is at 99 to 100 percent in both pc and norton. Why? It takes awhile for it to settle and function again.
The only repeat behavior on norton file at these times is always C:\windows\system32/ctfmon.exe , norton says unauthorized access blocked process token actor pid 992 target 3956 (norton internet security and my version number 220.127.116.11 ccSvcHst.exe)
Is this why its at high cpu of both pc and norton? What the heck? I cant use pc much when its like this and cant end process of either.
I scanned with malwarebytes and norton no issues...xp sp3 I take all updates. Im reluctant to go to 2010 nis till I feel its very stable It sounds like folks are having some issues and its a big undertaking...I loved nis 2009 till now> help.
Thanks for input.
PS: I only have works basics and a 2003 word viewer that I thought I deleted, no longer opens and isnt on add delete programs..Message Edited by artfreak on 01-07-2010 04:14 AM
