wbemcore.dll using 100% CPU through SVCHOST

    For months now I've been having a disappearing/reappearing problem of
    SVCHOST using all CPU resources. If it happens, it *only* happens
    whenever I am connected to the Internet, usually after several hours
    of the connection being open, and it ends either mysteriously, or when
    I end the connection.

    Multiple adware, spyware, anti-virus/worm/trojan scans later, nothing.
    HijackThis doesn't find anything.

    Using Process Explorer, I've determined that SVCHOST is accessing
    wbemcore.dll; when I kill SVCHOST's accessing of wbemcore, my system
    returns to normal. What would cause this situation? I run WinXP SP1;
    it has happened both on dialup and on DSL.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Check out above listings. It sounds like something you
    might want to live with until next service pack(SP2)
    comes out this summer...Good luck.
