Looks like processes on this system are forking at a rate of 5000/sec.
The `last pid' in the top output should be incrementing like mad. The
processes finish before top gets to see them for a long enough time, so
you don't get to see a single process eating up all cpu.

No virus detected in this message. Ehrm, wait a minute...
/kernel: pid 56921 (antivirus), uid 32000: exited on signal 9
Oh yes, no virus:)
