Task Manager reports explorer.exe anywhere between 40-75%, with services.exe making up the difference constantly to total 100%.
I was able to go in via safe mode and uninstall SP3, but the problem still exists. How can I get control of my machine long enough to reinstall SP2, or simply troubleshoot the identified issue? Any help would be appreciated.
This box is the domain controller, and I use it occasionally as a Terminal Services server as well. By the way, I did have McAfee Online installed. I've since removed it via safe mode.
