it all started about 2 weeks ago, and ive only had my computer up and running again for like 3 weeks. at first, windows update wouldnt connect, it would try but use up almost all of the CPU, and my computer would run slow. then after getting help with a microsoft tech we got it working running all kinds of command prompt stuff, and i was able to get my updates, but even still its acting weird. like anytime wuauclt.exe runs, it still uses a lot of CPU, and freezes up, and it wouldnt read my zip drive, and as soon as i close it in task manager, everything is fine.
the sound is always glitchy, and skips all the time, like when i start it up, after the blue screen when it makes the welcome noise or whatever you want to call it, it skips there, and any music i play it does it as well randomly. then, if i try to stop playing music, windows media player will freeze up, and my CPU usage will skyrocket, ive never had a problem with my sound period, so why now?
then it freezes up a lot opening folders or programs for no reason, and occasionly task manager will say its using a lot of CPU when the only thing using any is system idle process, makes no sense to me.
i checked event viewer, and nothing worth mentioning showed up.
