Use whatever you want to but make sure you only use apps or run processes from trusted sources.

This is a link to d/l a handy tool called Process Explorer. It shows all processes going on and if you r click on the process it offers a Search Online option, as well as other useful options.

SMSS.exe is part of the system files, as long as it's located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

If it's located in another folder, then I would investigate, it's probably malware/spyware/virus.

the strange thin is it says, located in ' \SystemRoot\System32\smss.exe and not C:\Windows\System32
Does this matter ?

Hitman Pro might find and fix the problem. It's a small download and takes a few minutes to scan so it's worth trying. If the default scan finds nothing, try the EWS scan.

Ok ill try hitman pro, scanning with spybot had no results,
Meawhile i deleted ATI_mainboard Via Hijack this, couldnt find serials for Prevx, to bad cause it looks like a good program, now I wanna check those other processes which had weird names and locations(winnit.exe location - winnit.exe And Winlogin.exe location winlogin.exe both use round 2500Kb )

I scanned with Spyboy, AVG, Malware, and ill try hitman ( I deinstall every scanner before trying another),

CPU use is now stayin at 100%, so problem not solved
THe number of processes is staying steady on 76, which is still way to much

If you want i can show a Screenshot of my taksmanager.

You need to upload a screenie of your task manager showing cpu usage in descending order. What you have uploaded right now shows your RAM usage. Remember, CPU usage and memory usage are 2 different things. try to sort them out one by one.

You still havent told us what the "Available" RAM is.

Have you run a scan with MBAM to get rid of the malware you mentioned?

1) Out of your 4gb RAM, 1.44gb is being used right now. Thats about 35%. So thats OK.

2) Your CPU graph shows 81% but adding up the cpu usage figures for individual processes totals to only 11% leaving 89% free. So, my guess is that 81% is a momentary spike. Thats normal. When one opens any app- WMP, IE, anything, theres the momentary spike then it goes down. Unless the spike continues for a while, it shoudnt be reason for worry.

3) What about your malware?
