Thanks Chuck. The cmd Tasklist /svc will tell me what is really running behing svchost.exe
I can see right now over 30 items, mostly Norton and Win processes.
Unfortunately my desktop, soon to be replaced has a max memory of 768

loaded latest fixes this morning - reboot - and when Exploder 6.something
started - it locked computer - had to boot with the power switch.
finally up, but deathly slow. svchost.exe is consuming most resources
and I assume cannot be cancelled.
Any ideas?
