My CPU has been running at 100% for a few weeks and have tried McAfee, Trend Micro, Sementec, Ad-aware, Registry Mechanic and nothing will idenify the Trojan/Malware. From some research it sounds like it may be embedded in an svchost file.
Task Manager shows the System program to be maxing out the CPU-98-99% and shutting down the processes in TM has not worked either. And the USB ports have somehow been disabled.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance-
