My mistake. It was under the catagory of "software usage", not "installed software".

So that means you've used it before, but it is no longer installed.

Get 1 of those 2 anti-virus programs uninstalled, and try it out again. If the lagging still occurs, use Process Explorer and take a screenshot when high CPU usage occurs (see my instructions from previous post)

Please take a screen shot of Process Explorer. It will make it much easier for me to tell what is causing your CPU spike.

To take a screen shot, press Print Screen/SysRq on your keyboard. Open Paint and paste. Save the screenshot as a JPEG and post it in a reply to me.
