Hi there, having slight problems with my very old pc, with an svchost.exe at 90%+ cpu usage, bit weird as it's not always continuously at a high % usage, & whilst completing this topic entry the performance usage suddenly drops down to near nothing for a while, then returns to high again, below is a hjt and malwarebytes logs, question is, apart from that i need a new pc (and it is due replacement in the next few months) what do i need to do now ?? many thanks if anyone can help
