What are your system specs?

i will need to get a hardware scanner to tell you. Like i said it is a custom built rig. I can tell you the basics of it, but the specific details will have to come from a hardware scanner.

do you have any preferences on which hardware scanner to use?

Lets see if we can get some system information.

Download and install PC Wizard 2010

Run the program and it will analyze your computer and then display the results.
In the upper left hand corner click on the floppy icon.
You will get a save as screen.
Change the range bullet "only this selection" to be "selected category".
Make sure that text is selected for format.
Click on ok and you will be given a spot to save it to.

Attach it to your response.

The basics work for me. Motherboard make and model. Graphics make and model (if not on board). RAM amount, PSU model, and OS.

Don't forget a complete malware scan - at least with Malwarebytes's Anti-Malware (MBAM).

ok im having trouble with CPUZ.. All it does is sit there. I see a cpuz.exe process in task manager that is running consistantly at 25% CPU(never varies at all). but the program does nothing.

The splash screen says monitoring.. that what it goes to when i start the program I did not click on anything else... I tried it right after a reboot so that there wasnt much of anything else running (except the program i have set to run on startup).It did the same thing.. I let it sit over night and when i get here at 2:00pm the next day it is still sitting at the same point.

Any ideas?

so... with cpuz i never get to that second image. it just freezes on the initial splash screen. MBAM came up clean. Kaspersky came up clean as well. i am still have tremendous slowdowns. It seems as though there is something that is tying up the system and causing it to peak.. but none of the malware people have been able to find anything(i have tried a couple of times as well as a friend of mine with this computer) and this occurs even after reformatting the HDD so i dont think it is software related (though if anyone else thinks otherwise i am open for suggestions)

any ideas of what to try next?

BTW.... Thanks to everyone who is putting time into this. hopefully we can get this figured out.
