Hi guys

Here's the thing:

When i try to rename, delete, move a file, the folder freezes up, i have to ctrl+alt+del out to end the task... When i go back in the folder i tried renaming, it's renamed, but same thing happens the next time... I've tried to install some updates, but it tells me that the file does not associate with my system.... or something... i don't know... i think i need updates maybe? I got SP1 for Vista, and that did not solve anything....

And also, Why does my CPU usage stay at 50%-51% when idle? I remember it being 0%-5% when i built it not so long ago... It just stays like that.. does it mean it's as if only one of my cores was being used or what?? I'm really confused...

My computer specs: Nvidia 680i SLi Special Edition MOBO, Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.33GHz, 2 Gig OCZ Plat. Rev. 2 Ram @ 820MHz, 320 GB Seagate HD, GeForce 7600GT xXx edition, 600W Dual-Rail PSU...

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Hi there,

The symptoms you are describing sound like there's some sort of virus on the computer - you'll want to head to the Malware section of this forum. If, after being certified "clean" by one of our Certified Malware Techs, and you still are experiencing the problem, then head back here and we'll continue with some other troubleshooting options.

Specifically, follow all the instructions in this link (click here).

Step 5 will explain how you post a log. Make sure you start a new topic in the Malware forum (click here).

One of our experts will review your log and help you clean your machine like new. :)

Just beware the forum is very busy, please don't reply to your own thread as it will look like somebody is already helping you. If it is 3 days or longer with no reply, feel free to post a New Topic in the Waiting Room (click here).
