hey i am really having a tough time with my cpu here and im not really sure why this is happening but when i am using my computer my mouse pointer starts to "stick". its not a laggy but just slower i guess. and music play back gets messed up greatly. it slows down playback. same thing with youtube videos they lag. or anyvideos i happen to be watching. This also effects games. regular games that are not using the internet.
i can just be sitting there at my desktop with nothing up or running and cpu usage will spike.

i used to be able to run multiple programs too.
like itunes + azureus + IE7.
now i can only do one at a time.
which sucks....

I am running on windows XP Professional SP2
Pentium 4 | 3.0 GHz
Some crappy fox conn motherboard that is now discontinued
3GB Corsair ram
PNY 8800GTS 640MB
4 seperate hard drives: 160GB,160GB,250GB,500GB

im not sure if my processor has just partially burned out or what....

SOMEONE HELP!!!
(please :) )

It shouldn't be a processor problem. If so, the computer won't even boot.

Please read this topic, and if they don't work, post a HijackThis log in the Malware Removal Forum in my signature.

i dont know if this changes anything but i found out that the process that takes up the most cpu power is "system."
it takes up 50% - 60% all by itself.
