I've had this problem for a while. Sometimes it happens, other times it does not. Usually I can simply reboot and the problem will be solved for the day. But, it's been getting worse.

 My CPU usage will jump to about 60-80% every once and a while and all my sounds and videos will lag for half a second, then I will get this weird buzzing distorted sound. Upon investigation in my resource monitor, I noticed that every time the distortion happens, the "system" process jumps to 20-30% CPU. I'm fairly certain this is the culprit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
