I will update with all of my computer specs in a little bit...
So a while a go I decided to go into services and disable things that weren't completely necessary (like telephony and the error reporting service). I followed a guide on the internet at: http://www.jasonn.com/turning_off_unnecessary_services_on_windows_xp
After I did that, my computer didn't recognize the CD drive. I found this out when I went to re-install my wireless adapter which was failing a few seconds after I would connect to the internet... I put the CD in, then nothing happened, so I went into My Computer to try and see if I could just click on the icon to open the CD, but it wasn't there. I could press on the button for the CD drive and it would pop open, but I guess the computer wasn't recognizing the CD drive.
Another thing that I should mention is that there was a weird process called profilecnt.exe that was running. Also, you know how you usually can see the username in the process explorer window, well only one of the names were showing. I think it was my user name. I googled profilecnt.exe and I didn't really find anything.
So after this, I booted up my computer in safe mode and then ran Malware Bytes ( I have a paid subscription). In safe mode, my sound card disables. In regular mode, it doesn't.
So those are the weird conditions.
