CPQDFWAG.EXE hogging all processing speed

I have an older compaq armada and need all the processor available, but I have notice that the CPQDFWAG.EXE is utilizing75-90% of the available and sometimes 100%. When I hit end process it gives me an access denied- you dont have permission. I am the administrator and have administrative privileges. Tried deleting the file out of winnt on c: and advises that it is in use. Please help.

May be you should delete it by booting in safe mode.
Or, if it is a service, set the startup to manual.
Did you try finding the startup in msconfig?

One cure. To kill such processes, you can use the following command:

(Not sure if it works in windows 2000)
taskkill /IM CPQDFWAG.exe /F

That belongs to Compaq Diagnostics Utility. See if you can find such a service and disable it.
