If you, at any time, installed the Comcast toolbar, CA Pest Patrol Real Time Protection came with it. If you had the toolbar and uninstalled it, Real Time Protection remains. You can uninstall the CA Real Time component via add/remove programs (Programs and Features).

I think you should uninstall both the Comcast toolbar and the ComcastAntiSpy Pest Patrol Real Time Protection component. Reboot. Report back.

What program is giving you the popup? Windows Xp does not have any such monitoring software.

Please click Start > Run > type or paste msinfo32 > Press Enter. Allow system information to populate. Click Edit > Select all > click Edit again > Copy. Paste the results in your reply.

Does it by any chance look like this:

Looks similar it depends on the program being used, no one program trips it .

Looks similar

Norton strikes again (maybe)! Ironically, certain programs (Norton is one of them), wind up causing slowdowns by using too many CPU cycles:

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&cp=27&gs_id=7&xhr=t&q=ccSvcHst.exe+high+cpu+usage+xp&pf=p&sclient=psy-ab&site=&source=hp&pbx=1&oq=ccSvcHst.exe+high+cpu+usage&aq=0&aqi=g4&aql=&gs_sm=&gs_upl=&fp=1&biw=1152&bih=707&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&cad=b

Open up Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del). Select the Processes tab. Click TWICE on the "CPU" column heading so that the processes using the most CPU cycles are listed at the top.

Identify the top seven (and their values).

For good measure, sort by Mem Usage and let us know the top seven for that as well.

The registry is simply a database, and "cleaning" or "tweaking" it yields virtually no detectable improvement in performance. Additionally, certain registry changes can ruin your PC! So stay away from any program that claims to improve performance by cleaning the registry!
