Hello, my name is Wayne, and this is my first post.

Actually, I'm having a problem with my Mom's computer (I take care of all the computers in our family). I'm not a professional, but as the youngest I guess I constitute our IT department.

So this thing is a Toshiba Satellite running Vista-32 bit. It has 2/3 of its hard drive unused, and it's never been used for any sort of file-sharing, entertainment, or other risky computer stuff. The only thing is that suddenly it's freezing all the time, and I do notice that CPU usage seems high, spiking at 99% at times when there's no software running except startup programs and the like. I have tried turning off some of the startups that looked suspicious to me and actually right now it does seem to be doing better! We'll see...

Anyway, I wasn't really asking for help at this time, because I'm hoping I've got it knocked for now. Wish me luck!
