The last couple of days I've noticed my system running very slow. I opened the task manager and found the CPU stays around 100% all the time, it may drop to 98 or 99 for a second but jumps back to 100. The "system" process shows to be taking 99% of the CPU usage.
I can't figure out the problem. I am very paranoid about spyware and virus. I use AVG and am free of viruses. I also use Spybot, Ad-Aware, and Windows Defender and am free of all spyware. My system also sits behind a hardware router and I use Zone Alarm software firewall.
I've opened my case and cleaned it out, wasn't too bad. I've also disconnected all extra external hardware that is not required (only mouse, monitor and keyboard still hooked up). I can't however find out the source of the problem and what is slowing down my system.
Any help would be greatly appreciated !!
