Hey, my PC usage stays in the range of 45% to 55% when the System Idle Process is at 99%.

A scan with NOD32 did not yield anything.

A list of recent changes made to my PC by me.

Applied the TCPIP patch to increase the number of half-open connections while using torrent applications. Have done it before. Did not cause a problem.
Tried to update Windows XP SP2. The Microsoft Update website gave an error. Resolution was to add Microsoft Update to the list of safe websites in Internet Explorer. Removed the websites from the list later on.
Installed Adobe CS3 Suite. Disabled the Adobe Version Cue CS3 entry in msconfig.
Rewired the PSU wires in my Computer and also changed the SATA cables arrangement. So now I get the NTLDR error, and have to use F8 to select the hard drive on which my OS is actually installed since Windows can detect it automatically. Also I have a SATA DVD RW.

The problem usually crops up when I either quit Adobe applications or quit any program.
I don't surf much, so there are no websites other than Orkut that I visit.

The HijackThis log is as follows.
