'drwtsn32.exe' & 'system Idle Process' Eating All Cpu, No Internet, Malware?[INACTIVE]

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I'm running xp media center edition 2005 sp3 on a dell inspiron 6000 laptop (dual booting ubuntu 8.04 as well, but I havent got that configured yet, ie no internet, sound, etc...) and I'm having some serious issues in xp. I noticed my system was running slowly and when i try to open firefox i get an hourglass and then nothing happens. I looked in the processes running and firefox.exe is listed but only using 9000 memory, and it never pops up. I also noticed that between 'system idle process' and 'drwtsn32.exe' all my cpu is used up! I ran avast, avira, ad aware, and spyware terminator and nothing has been found. Oh also when I reboot Ashampoo Firewall crashes every time and prompts whether to send crash information. Windows says it is connected to the internet at 54mbps with a good signal strength, yet nothing can reach the internet (i end process 'drwtsn32.exe' and firefox can open up but i cant even get an offline mode message, only a blank screen)

I installed hijackthis and here is my log:
