I don't know what it is. Cpu usage spikes to 100% on startup, which takes about 10 min to boot up. after it does, everything runs so slow. certain programs remain unresponsive, even if left to try and work for hours. Taskmgr.exe is taking up most of the cpu, usually running at around 50-60% cpu usage, with explorer.exe running at between 15 & 30% cpu usage.
