    Default cpu spike after xp sp2 install

    I have a problem with sp2 install in that since installing, the cpu spikes to 100% every 4 or 5 seconds, causing temporary freezup. Apart from that everything seems to work properly, if you know what I mean. I have uninstalled and everything goes back to normal, but I think I should be able to have sp2 on my system
    I have xp Home, P4 2.4 intel with 1 GB ram, Realtek Winfast video, um what else? I'm new to this stuff so not sure how to post this really. My system is basically legit and normally runs without problems.

    MS suggest it is an error in the cpu driver and told me to roll it back to the driver before sp2 install but this had no effect.

    I have followed the instructions re msconfig diagnostics but the problem reoccurs as soon as the computer reboots, that is with no items ticked.
    However, if I shutdown and reboot in safe mode, (by pressing f8 and selecting safe mode) the system does not freeze (cpu spike). I have scanned using Housecall, panda, as well as mcafee which I have on my computer. I have used cwshredder, spybot search and destroy, adaware, regvac and system mechanic,spysubtract and eliminated any gremlins I have found, but the problem persists. I cannot see any process listed in task manager causing the cpu spike, but the graph shows regular spiking. I include a copy of log from Hijackthis in the
    hope that it will be of some help. Looking forward to hearing from you soon as this is very annoying.
    Thanks for any help people.

    Isn't this the same post? http://www.help2go.com/postt10291.html

    You have not responded to that post since people have replied to it. You are also allowed to "bump" the post after a couple of days if no=one has replied to it but since people have I'd suggest taking a look at those responses first.
