Whenever Java.exe is running, CPU usage will spike to 100% for 10-15 seconds at a time, then return to 20-30% for 10-15 seconds then spike again at 100% for 10-15 seconds. This cycle last as long as JAVA is open and running. It happens if I'm using ie or firefox. I've cleaned the registry, run virus scans, uninstalled and reinstalled java, defragged, updated my video and sound drivers, run SPyBot S&D, etc., etc. I should also mention that CPU utilization will also peg at 100% when viewing videos, streaming or not.

AMD Turion64, 1GB RAM, running windows xp, SP3.

I've spent nearly a month searching this forum and several others for an answer to this, but have found nothing of any consequence.

Someone's gotta have an answer to this - three other computers in the house (that are older with slower processors and far less RAM) have no problems.

Many thanks in advance!

Java tends to leave remnants behind, after an uninstall.
Try downloading the latest version of Java, then using JavaRa to remove all traces of previous installs.
Then re-install Java.
