Well, my problem happened last night. I was playing a game when suddenly my computer locked up. Well, I had to restart it. I come back and now it seems my processor is much slower. Most the time when I try to get back into it, I get to the menu screen and after 2 seconds the screen goes blank and the CPU just sits there, doing nothing(overloaded?). When I try other games, everything is slowed down to a crawl. I've ran McAfee virus scan, spybot, spy sweeper, Xoftspy, and CWShredder and I can't find any viruses or trojans that would cause the problem. I looked at the task manager and all the processes it lists and everything seems to be normal. It's like my computer just decided to stop using half of it's processor(or some other program has decided to take over processor power). I'm not sure if it matters, but a couple weeks ago I did get the HomeSearchAssistant trojan/virus but I got it taken care of. So far I'm thinking it could either be something wrong with the hardware or some software setting was accidently changed somewhere. Anyone ran into a situation like this? Thank you for any help.
