You mentioned that when you open Task Manager and it is showing that the CPU is running at 100% do you happen to know what the process is that is causing this?
What you can try to do is run a System Restore to the last restore point to see if that makes a difference, if the restore point happens to be dated after your problems first seemed to start, select another one that is just before the problems started and try that one.
Sometimes setting your page file too large can cause issues, your cpu might be running high right now setting up the page file. Hope this helps.

anyways, thanks again for your time. if you have anymore suggestions please let me know. i really would like to know what i should set my page file to be (i have a 40gb HD with 28GB free). and how much does the size of the page file really affects performance?
