I went out and bought a new hard drive, and re installed Windows XP on it. I added a few necessary programs, like Mozilla, AIM, iTunes, etc and a Anti Virus. I also updated to XP SP2.

I installed itunes, and noticed that it took about 10 minutes to open up. Once it did, it didnt detect iPod for another few minutes, and once it did, I would click a song and it would freeze and take about 3 or 4 minutes to start. Even switching songs took forever to work.

I noticed that my CPU usage anytime I had iTunes on was 100%! slowing my pc down way too much. a file called services.exe was taking up most of the CPU usage, along with iPodService.exe They were both completely proportional in usage. If services.exe was 60%, ipodservice.exe was 40% equaling 100%. So, I uninstalled iTunes and re installed, and it did nothing. I did different versions as well. If iTunes is off, services.exe's usage goes to 0% and my pc runs fine.

if anyone can help me, it would be appreciated.

See this Apple website for some troubleshooting ideas.

Is it this slow without hooking the iPod up? If so, have you tried resetting the iPod by holding the middle button and the top of the scroll wheel for about 20 seconds (this'll reset the iPod without affecting your songs).
