I'm experiencing certain small lags in Games.
This PC I bought, is brand new, only a few weeks old, got Vista x64 Buisness with SP1, the latest drivers, the latest firmware / bios installed.

So far, this has only happened in Games ( 3D Applications? ) and started to begin just recently. I thought that some windows updates were to blame, because I installed some a few days ago, but I wouldn't know which one.
I could also imagine, that my soundcard, a Creative Soundblaster X-Fi with Youp-Pax drivers, is responsible, as these drivers are 3rd-party and Vista isn't known for its driver compability.

I'm not sure about this, but I think the CPU load has gone 100% the second I experience those lags. If there is a way to determine the application to blame, please post it.

Thanks in advange, Zephy.

EDIT: The Eventmanager says something about "\Device\Scsi\JRAID1 not responding in time". Is that related?
EDIT2: I downloaded AVG Free Edition, because I figured it might be a Malware / Virus caused problem and I found some Virus called: Trojan Horse Backdoor.Generic9.NVU

Any Virus that is called a Backdoor Trojan, is a bot that has control over your computer.

High risks are typically installed without user interaction through security exploits, and can severely compromise system security. Such risks may open illicit network connections, use polymorphic tactics to self-mutate, disable security software, modify system files, and install additional malware. These risks may also collect and transmit personally identifiable information (PII) without your consent and severely degrade the performance and stability of your computer.

My first advice to you is to get to a 'known' clean computer (not the one you're using now!) and change all your passwords....also, if you've done any online banking or credit card purchases from this machine, you should want to notify your bank.

Download HijackThis™ here:

Right click on it and choose "Run as Administrator". Click 'Do a System Scan and Save logfile'.
The HJT log will open in notepad.

Copy and paste the contents of the HJT log into a NEW TOPIC in "HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal"

I did, what you told me to:

If possible, I want to avoid reinstalling Vista ...
Would I have to format ALL the drives or just C:?
