I have a virus infection. It results in one of the svchost processes taking more than 108MB of memory and more until the machine freezes. If I go to task manager and stop the boated svchost process & everything is OK for a while. I am running XP Pro. I am runnig current version of Trend Micro and have done a full scan and found nothing. Also ran Adaware in safe mode.
I also notice there are some folders that do not apear in safe mode that show up when the full system is up . They are off the root of the C: drive and show up in Win Explorer. One is called Recycler and it has folders that I cannot delete because the system says they are in use. There is also a folder called System Volumn Information that I cannot open. I did npt see these folders prior to this problem starting yesterday.
Whatever it is, it is also filling up my C: drive. I run C: on a small partition of the main hard drive, about 14GB and it is nearly full.
I am at a loss as to what to do next. The computer is unusable this way.
