The first time I started having issues was when the computer froze up randomly. I thought nothing of it and turned off my computer using the on button. Then 2 days after my computer began running EXTREMELY slow and eventually locked up for 2 min. Then the screen went to black for 20 sec. Next thing I know the computer began to try to load up and render whatever I was working on (it was an excel spreadsheet). Could something be wrong or is this just a freak occurence?

I'm running 64-bit Vista

Thanks. You guys are lifesavers.

P.S. I don't know if this will make a difference but on Call of Duty 4 it says that the server I try to reach only allows low ping players. I have tested my ping on pingtest.net and it said my ping was 21. This may be irrelevant but I read somewhere that the "server only allows low ping" warning may be due to spyware.

I have attached my most recent HiJackThis log too.
