Srange resource hog

by 1Chris / August 1, 2010 3:01 PM PDT

I started Superantispyware on a Windows 2000 machine and it seemed to be taking an excessively long time to load. I pulled up Task Manager and noticed cpu usage was at 100% and a process was using 120,000k. I went to get something to write it down and then it disappeared. I tried it again and saw f63e766d-b098-4 (a different string than before) was taking up 120,000 k again.
I can't seem to find any reference to this. Any clues?

Or there is malware on this machine.

When I see that I boot SAFE MODE and try again. Hint? F8

Also since it is in safe mode I give it lots of time to get it done.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
