Hi, here's my situation. While trying to play World of Warcraft, my graphics would freeze and/or turn black, but I could still hear responses to pressing keys and randomly clicking around. I went to various WoW forums to try to figure out my problem, I updated my video card and CPU drivers, I did a fresh install of WoW, etc and it didn't help. Then I noticed that whenever the graphics froze, it was because CPU usage went to 100%, and if I just waited a few minutes, it would drop below 100% and my graphics would work again. So then I started looking at threads about CPU usage, and I got the impression that I might have a virus, so I did some scans. I ran Ad-Aware and didnt find anything out of the norm, but then I ran housecall anti virus and I found backdoor.win32.dssdoor.c. So then I ran spybot, stinger, and a-squared, and when I did, my normal antivirus software (avast) finally gave me a popup about the backdoor. So I used those programs to delete any infected files, and I tried to run WoW again, and I still have the same problem. So what should be my next step? Do you think the problems are related or unrelated? Thanks.

256MB Radeon X700

Are you using the stock power supply or have you added a higher wattage one? Your Radeon X700 needs a minimum of a 350 watt PS, and that E Machine only included a 300 watt PS.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
