Default svchost.exe using 100% CPU

I followed the advice in this thread (except I haven't run all the scans in safe mode. They took a long time, and I wanted to see if hijackthis could fix it without having to first do that. If it doesn't work I'll follow the complete order next), and I'm still having the same problem, i.e. svchost.exe is maxing out my CPU.

Here's the hijackthis log:

Do you see anything that might be causing this, or do I need to run all the scans again in safe mode?

Hmm looks pretty much OK. What exactly is the problem? its normal to have multiple instances of svchost.. you say its using 100% of your CPU.. are you getting that from the performance tab of the taskmanager? that shows your actual CPU usage and the process' tab shows which processes are using what proportions of that CPU usage.
