You probably have spyware which is doing its stuff in the background.

*Click on "Windows Validation Assistant"
*Click on the "Validate Now" button.
*Be patient while the ActiveX loads, do not click on any links.
*Read the instructions on this page while it's loading. You will be prompted to install - click YES.
*Enter your product key then click "continue"
*When it says "Validation Complete" please click "Continue to return to your previous activity"
*Copy what it says and paste it here.
I need this before we proceed to more indepth troubleshooting.

This is a strong indicator that your operating system is genuine, however the Windows Validation Assistant cannot make a final determination.
The benefits of genuine Windows software include greater reliability, faster access to updates, and overall richer experiences. Users of genuine Windows are also eligible to receive special offers as part of the Windows Genuine Advantage program.
To verify that you received a genuine Certificate of Authenticity and software CD, compare your anti-piracy features in the next section.

I believe the source of your problem may be a bad sector in your hard drive.
Try checking your HDD for errors using Start>Programs>Accessories>Scan Disk and select your C: drive. On the next reboot Windows will run a full scan of your hard drive for errors. This may take up to 3 Hours depending on the size of your HDD so be patient.
Also, consider running a Defragmentation. The XP install often leaves HDD's full of fragments, which take up space and can kill preformance.
I hope that this helps

You might check your router settings it is often a problem and the reason for high pings, a change in your system can trigger a change in your oruter

Open a command prompt and type ...
(replace the sequence of 255's with the ip address of the cs server you connect to)
Have you tried going back to the old OS and seeing if the ping goes back down ?
A pain, I know, but if you have only just upgraded it won't hurt too much, and at least then you can either confirm or eliminate the fact that the OS upgrade caused the problem.

But, I have noticed that when I open steam quickly and open up the pub servers list, the pings are between 25-150 for a while..... then they all just jump all the way up to 500-2000. This really pisses me off. I think its gotta be the OS, but I cant see why an OS would affect connection speed.
