Recently did a fresh install of windows 7 home premium on my HP G62-140US laptop (formatted hd, etc). Everything seemed fine until i started to watch a video (doesn't matter what site, could be youtube, hulu, etc). From anywhere between 5-20 minutes of watching a video, my computer becomes extremely slow. The video freezes, probably going less then 1 fps, but the sound is still playing. Sometimes, the sound lags too. Task manager shows normal memory use but 100% CPU use... In resource monitor, the hog seems to be NT Kernal & System. Since this is a fresh install, im assuming its not malware or a virus. Any ideas? I thought it was the video card driver at first so i uninstalled it and reinstalled it to no avail. Also, the pc works fine in safe mode (i can watch videos).
