Hi,

Hope someone can help me here. I just installed sygate firewall. After this point I have noticed that my computer has slowed down and that in processes on windows xp, drwtsn32.exe is using at least 90% of CPU constantly. It is slowing down all other applications. I have done a virus scan with avast and it has found nothing. Can anyone help me with this.

Cheers,

Lee

As far i know drwtsn32.exe should not be running all the time only when the system has had an error and you need to send a report to MS,try ending the task,i know it is not running on my system and i have sygate firewall installed.

Thanks for the reply. I just did a hijack this log to see if anything looked wrong. Can anyone see anything wrong here?
