Hey guys. I'm a new poster here so bear with me.

I have a Dell XPS 410
Intel Core 2 CPU
4300 @ 1.8Ghz
1.79GHz, 2.0 GB of RAM
Running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3.

My Computer has been getting slower and slower. Programs that normally run with ease are eating up 60-100% of my CPU! I have tried defragmentor, Microsoft's Disk Cleanup utility, running scans with AVG Free, Spybot, and Ad-Aware. I can't even play my music on WMP without my CPU hitting 100% and the music jittering. I ran a scan with HijackThis and here's my log:


Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2
Scan saved at 10:22:48 AM, on 5/17/2009
Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16827)
