Booted into safe mode and searched in the registry for rundll31 and deleted all entries that I could. Some wouldn't delete.
Rebooted and the Windows 2000 pc ran a good deal faster but I could hear the hard drive still working hard. Task manager showed the cpu 96% free.
Removed Logitech mouse software in the control panel and rebooted.
Disabled the Firedaemon service and rebooted.
The pc seemed ok for some minutes but then the hard drive started up again. Disabled the telephony service, rebooted then reenabled the telephony service.
The pc now seems to be running OK
