Not sure if I've got anything serious. I've monitored my web traffic and I'm not sending out inordinate amounts of data, but my computer slows down and gets glitchy. I find this pattern very strange. My mouse will freeze, get glitchy, keyboard won't type all the keys I've pressed, and in general computer seems pretty slow... then I open Task Manager. CPU Usage: 74% oops did I say that? I meant CPU Usage: 1%. It's really high when I first open it, and then it instantly drops. It seems to me that a really smart virus would do something like this, close or stop its process when I check up on it. After I close Task Manager, the computer does well for another 3 seconds or so, then gets glitchy again. It's not a work-stopping problem, but it's a little frustrating and I'm getting worried, as I don't consider this to be normal behavior for a computer. Any ideas?
