Hi Everyone,

I am posting these logs as I am having issues with my PC. I replace my hard drive 2 to 3 months ago so this is a fairly fresh XP load. Very often, the machine becomes very sluggish and unresponsive. Pages load very slowly and quite often need to be refreshed to load properly. IE 7 is crashing more often than I would like. Maybe once every 8 to 10 hours of surfing. When I open task manager, 78 to 80% of the time CPU utilization is 100% or very close. This is when the machine becomes very sluggish and unresponsive. Usually it is either iexplor.exe or svchost.exe that is using all the cpu cycles but some times it is SYstem Idle Process that is at 99% and the cpu usage is very high.

The strange thing is I had roughly the same issue before the hard drive died so I attributed the problem to the dying drive. I have the same issue with the new drive as well. Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am using this machine five to six hours a day. Thank you all for your help and have a great day.

Thank you,

George D.
