While this is going on, I've noticed CPU usage will jump to 100% even using a simple app like Visual Boy Advance. XP also freezes when about 400 mb is used in the page file.
I'm at a loss as to how to fix it. It's only a recent thing. If I am unzipping/Archiving or even running System mechanic or Kaspersky, even playing Spider Solitaire slows down the system.
The system will crawl for a few seconds. Even youtube videos suffer the slowdown.
I also only have the bare minimum system processes running and no startup items except for Kaspersky.
On a normal moment my system has: 317m/3999m and 26 processes running when using task manager.
Here are my specs:
Pentium 4 1.70 Ghz
1024 mb pc 133 Sdram ( 2 x 256 MB, 1 x 512 mb )
256 ATI Radeon X1050 ( AGP 4X )
40 gb HD and 160 Gb hd
External HP DVD burner
XP Service Pack 3
I'm attaching my CPUZ log file.
