2003 P to V 100% CPU

I been ahving issues with a P to V recently where the CPU is pegged at 100% shortly after boot, making it impossible to login or do anything. I gave it more RAM and somehow managed to log in and fire up task manager before the madness started. I killed the offending tasks and had a look through the services to see which one was no longer running. It turns out that “HP Insight Foundataion Agent” was the culprit. I’ve disabled this along with al the other HP Agents and things seem fine. It was a pretty old version we were running, and it might be fixed in a newer one. However they serve no purpose now it’s a VM so disabling them is probably a good thing either way.
