I have 66 processes running and I'm at 30% CPU and 40% RAM. On boot I have about 64 running, as since I have booted up I ran Firefox and X-Fire. This should be ok unless you are experiencing lag...

Cheers. there is a really big lag. The sound is really scratchy and I know that i should be able to run all these processes without any problems. Have run ll the tests suggested to no avail. My CPU is at 60% or higher. i have 42 processes running and i have no idea how to find out how much of my ram i am using. Something is using up all my memory and i have no idea what it is.

Please download and run hijackthis Do a scan and then save a log. Take the log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post.

We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.

I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.
