The Windows Tasklist Tool (included with XP pro) can help
discover the processes running under svchost.exe.

It can be downloaded at tech republic downloads:

http://techrepublic.com.com/5138-6268-5239039.html?
tag=search

it is run from a command prompt and has the syntax;

tasklist /SVC


Also, Systernals makes Process Explorer which can be
downloaded here:

http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml

An example of the later is here:

The R1
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings,ProxyServer = 203.169.250.28:80 can be deleted IF
YOU ARE NOT USING ANY PROXY.

The O2 - BHO: Discover deskshop Browser Helper Object is a
know program (not spyware) but can slow IE a bit.

Good Luck

I'd remove the tasks below from startup, as they usually aren't necessary:

C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe
C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe


The following i don't know, i'd disable them and test:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Works Shared\wkcalrem.exe
C:\Program Files\Exif Launcher\QuickDCF.exe
C:\Program Files\Discover Deskshop\Deskshop.exe
C:\Program Files\Exif Launcher\QuickDCF.exe


Also you could try another antivirus program (not NAV), as NAV is known for being a resource hog.

Download Avast! antivirus from http://avast.com. It is free and works well for me.

I had my hijak log looked at and there was nothing major wrong and we corrected some questionable items.
Im so frustrated, I just had my computer reformmated 6 months ago. It is running like a dog.Nothing is running in the background either.
I do however have about 15 files that won't defrag, and one of them is 535 MG and I can't unistall it, it is Jedi Academy, could that be the problem?
thanks

Are you certain that your PC has been Hijacked? How much memory do you have. When you run the Task Manager (Ctrl,Alt,Del) and click on the processes tab, by clicking on the CPU tab, you can see which processes are the memory hogs (system Idle process should have the biggest chunk of the CPU unless you are actively running another application). It should also give you a clue as to what's using up the computer resources. By selecting "suspect" processes one by one, you might be able to determine the culprit. The system won't let you end critical processes. If you run the Task Manager in Safe Mode, you can see the basic processes. Good luck.
