I'd check for viruses and other malware and make sure nothing is in there. Also a rootkit scan might not be a bad idea along with a hiJackThis scan. I've heard that some malware can mask itself as svchost.exe

Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
