My windows vista has been acting up lately, a haven't any solutions for the problems online in the short-term, so i've backed all personal files up and i'm ready to format. The problem with my laptop is, is that after about 30mins of use the CPU usage starts hitting 100% and my OS experience slows down to a turtles pace.

What I've done already:

-Ran the Windows Vista CD while still logged onto the desktop and reinstalled vista (this didnt solve the problem)
-Booted from the Windows Vista CD and formatted the C: drive partition (but didnt re-partition) then i install vista on C: (this also didnt solve the problem)

Things i already know about:

-Going to disk management and shrinking and enlarging partitions (this doesnt help me)

So i was thinking to maybe do an equivalent of an fdisk with vista and re-partition everything n start from scratch.

I would just like to know whether there are system files or boot files that need to be backed up b4 hand, and with what software do i use to fdisk and re-partition the whole computer?

Thank you,
Jay

Have u tried and ran an virusscanner, to see if you are infected? Because these symptoms look like those when people are infected (100% CPU usage, slow OS)
