Small Business Server 2003 R2. Machine runs normally for a few hours then goes to 100% CPU with cmd.exe and attrib.exe being the culprits.

I tend to start with Process Explorer in cases like these.  You want to look on at the cmd processes threads, figure out which is hogging processor time, and check its stack.  There are some links to pages on the Process Explorer download page explain how to do this more thoroughly.

I had Vipre AV on it along with SpyBot, MalwareBytes, Spyware Blaster. All 4 scanneed OK. I ran HouseCall from Trend and it caught BKDR_PCCLIEN, cleaned and removed it. Machine seems to be operating normally now,,, at least since last night.
 I'll let it run a while to make sure.
