 In task manager the number one resource using between 30-50%processor is "Service Host: Local Service (No Network) (3)". Under this are four services:

1. Widows Firewall

3. Base Filtering Engine

 I REALLY don't want to reimage this thing so any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
