Hi, I had the same problem on a server and we solve deleting and
re-creating Removable Storage database.
The problem was a services binding to svchost services. Microsoft has a
tool that shows what service are running at each instance of svchost

I would have to agree that you are having a driver conflict if it is ok
in safe mode.  Have you tried selective startup to troubleshoot from
that angle?

I had the same problem with an XP machine, it ended up being junky
drivers. (HP junk) Is your system in question a Hewlett Packard?

Hi The Group,
I hope someone get me a good advice about this problem. I have a
notebook with multiboot startup (2 Win2k, 1 WinXP). On the first
partition Win2k, svchost.exe take the 100% of CPU's resources. The
system is regularly patched (SP4 and all the latest Hot Fixes), personal
firewall and Antivirus clients updated. Scans with Symantec and Trend
Micro have nothing found. I've tried to shut down all the services
possible, without good result. I've also removed the last six
applications installed on: nothing happen. Only in safe mode (clear...),
the CPU work fine. It's possible that a (new) worm sleep inside the
client? Initially, I have thought about a Blaster Worm... I've checked
also the system registry, but nothing strange in on RUN key of LOCAL
MACHINE.

Anybody can light me?

Thanks in advance

Giancarlo
IT Manager
