About 3 of 5 times I start my computer I see "NY and System' using 50-55% of my available CPU time. This makes other application more difficult to run. Is there a cure for this situation?

Hi again -
Have you run chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow for a while ??

I think you know how to do these actions by now, and they should be the first things to run -

Checkdisk would have nothing to do with a process chewing up cycles. What is NY?

Let's try a selective startup. If the problem continues even with a clean boot then it may be a malware issue.

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.
