    My Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop is running very slow, apparently caused by svc.exe using up 99% of cpu capacity (Task Manager). Does anyone know of a fix for this problem?

    what is your current antivirus??

    do the following to insure your pc is clean:

    Download, install, update and do full scan with these free malware detection programs:

    Malwarebytes Free (MBAM): http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/

    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    Remove all found, reboot, and run again until scans run clean, these can be removed afterwards if you so choose. Run scans one at a time, please.
    ==========

    after pc is clean then we can work on speeding up your pc,
