Im not sure why this has been happening, but it happens quite frequently. When i have the internet running, whether it be firefox, EI, or even just playing a game on multiplayer, the cpu usage will jump every few minutes. Viewing this page right now requires near nothing of the cpu. But when i try to use something on the internet which would be more demanding of it, such as a game or a video, the CPU usage for the internet browser i am using will jump, causing the cpu to go to a full 100% and lag for a few seconds. This will happen every few minutes. Its not noticable if im doing something like i am now, where IE is running at a regular 0%, because the jumps dont take up all of the CPU. But when im using something thats already taking up about 20% of the CPU just from internet usage, those jumps can be very drastic. I have many registry errors, about 500. If anybody can help me fix this problem, or know of a good free reg cleaner, i would appreciate it. Thanks!

I also forgot to mention that i have two antivirus programs. Both AdAware and Panda '08. Would those clash and cause this?

You should only have one anti virus running at a time, they will cause each other problems like false positives.

Please let us know the make and model of your computer, how much RAM you have, and how much free space you have on you hard drive.

Not certain if this is the newest Adaware or not ,but that one seems to being causing some problems lately. Try removing it. Install the free Home Version of SUPERAntiSpyware

I tried playing some games online, which usually triggers the lag, but it worked perfectly smooth. I think everything is fine now. But if anything comes up ill post. For now its good!

Ugh. Its still happening. I wasnt even using a game this time. I was just looking at regular webpages and it started lagging. The cpu shot up to 100 and the mem usage of IE would also jump. I thought removing ad-aware would help, but i guess not.
And other suggestions?

Have you scanned with the SUPER program aand from Safe Mode? Then a Panda scan in Safe?
How to start Windows in Safe Mode

Let's clear out Malware first then work on the registry.

Ok theres a problem. I booted into safe mode, and started scanning with SAS. It was going really slow just because safe mode is slow. So i decide that its safe to go out in the other room since its going to take a very long time. So i walk into the other room, and come back maybe a minute later to check on the scan. Then i see that the computer is turned off. I hit the power button, and it does nothing. I panicked a little, and hit the button a few more times. Eventually it turned on. Why did it turn off? (it was scanning the registry during the time that it shut off)
I also have a LOT of registry errors. Maybe that did it? Know of any good free reg cleaners? I know i have about 500 errors.

I'm thinking the best TO DO is either a Repair or Full Install(Is this XP) to reestablish the registry.
A repair will not delete your data,but you will have to redo all updates. A Full will wipe the drive. You will need the XP CD

See items 3 &4 here http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/

Please ask any questios you ned
