Hi, I'm new here and I have a problem with my system's cpu. I already msconfigered all the startups that are unnecessary and for some reason , my computer boots up reallly slow and after maybe about 40 minutes use, my CPU for some reason goes unstably up to 65%-100%. I have checked task manager but have not seen anything that is taking up major space, annd I do not have norton as well. Is there any way that this problem can be solved?

When you said you "Misconfigured" your CPU could you give us a few more details?
What antivirus, antispyware, and any other security software do you have running?

I have AVG antispyware and zonealarm firewall.

when I msconfigered it, I meant that I only set up a few programs for startup such as:Firefox, AIM,Avg,HP digital imaging,Microsoft office,and something called plscd.exe.

If you Google plscd.exe there is a lot of information how to remove this - as it is malware of sorts.
