I first noticed the problem when I was watching an online video. It would freeze the picture and continue playing the sound. Then the problem progressed where it would freeze completely with no sound then unfreeze after a couple of minutes. I checked the task manager and it showed a high cpu usage taking up 4 blocks; now it's 6 blocks. The same problem occured with Guild wars also. I began to think the problem was related to the internet but when I tried disconnecting and running some programs I couldn't tell until now when I tried playing Monopoly and it periodically Froze. I tried disabling some of the services and processes that I thought were causing the problem but nothing changed. I even downloaded Process Exploere to view the list of Processes that were incurring high CPU usage. At first it seemed like svchost.exe was causing the problem but now it jumps; now its iexplorer, explore, services, procexp and MSASCui. I can't seem to identify the source of the high CPU usage. I have uploaded an attachment of the taskmanager while playing a video and I am including a HijackThis log into this message should you need it to diagnose the situation. Thanks
