Hello. :)

First of all, I am running Windows Vista with SP1, 1.90 GHz CPU and 3 GB ram.

I purchased a new laptop in april, 2 months ago. After a while a process called "Svchost.exe (BullGuard)" started to use up most of the CPU when i started some programs, could be Firefox. It is possible that it was when i installed SP1, but I am not sure.

I have been in contact with BullGuard numerous times, but they have yet to find a solution.
I have tried lots of things, scanning with BG, superantispyware, ad-aware and Ccleaner. I have also sent them a HJT log which was almost clean. basically nothing has worked yet.

Do any of you guys know if I am the first person that experiences this?
Does anyone have a solution?

Sincerely and in hope of answer,
Andreas Rasmussen

Hi guys,

if you have this problem with svchost.exe taking up constant high percentage of the CPU, please grab a hold of our QA, and they'll try to see if there's a particular reason for this behavior, caused by BullGuard. It's not a general Vista SP1 problem, but might be related to other software you have installed.

Please grab a hold of our Support through the BullGuard application, and refer to this post. They'll then give you the contact-details to QA.

If you want to do a bit of pinpointing yourself, you can try (TEMPORARILY!) to switch off the BullGuard on-access scanning. Go to the AV, and uncheck the "Enable real-time file monitoring". Please note that this effectively switches off the on-access virus detection, and you must re-enable the setting as soon as possible. If this doesnt make a difference in CPU-usage, you can also try switching on/off the firewall or the spamfilter. Whatever the result of this, remember to switch them back on, and report the finding when you talk to our QA.
