okay, so i ran both the things in safemode and rebooted without the cable attatched. But as soon as i plugged in the cable and started opera, that svchost process started and went apeshit crazy again. The pc had gone normal but it got messed up to the previous mixed low quality mode appearance level. I ran tdsskkiller and it became normal, even though that didnt catch any threats or anything i guess i have no option now, but to reinstall the os. @ford, i have all updating stuff disabled from msconfig too. This one wasnt normal. It was an ip with 89.xx.xxxx something.
