With all that out of the way, here is my problem. When I start Windows XP Home, the logo screen pops up, and the screen goes black for, on average, 5 minutes before Windows actually loads up and allows me to log on. Oddly enough, this is only part of the problem. My CPU usage is constantly under 10%, usually at 0 or 1. I often find myselg waiting for a program to open for about half a minute to 3 minutes as my CPU usage sits at 0%. If I so much as look at iTunes wrong, not only does iTunes not open, the entire computer stops being able to open new applications, save for basic operations (Task manager, My Computer, etc.); trying to end problem apps only results in more frustration as I'm prompted to close them, choose yes, and they remain open. I find that the only way for me to avoid the issues

Now, my thoughts: I have been running this processor fairly hot (40-45 degress idle, into the low 50s during gaming); is it possible I may have damaged it? Could it be my memory? Could it be Windows itself? I am hoping someone can help me, because reformatting will lose so many things I don't want to have to lose.

Thank you in advance.

You can use memtest+ to diagnose memory problems:

Any modifications I made were made long before this began. The computer itself is roughly 4 months old, home-built, and any OS changes that occured took place within the first week (Mainly just GUI tweaks and StartUp deletions).

EDIT: What really disturbs me is that, while programs will take forever to open, or even not open at all, the CPU usage does not rise above 10%; in fact, it only rises >2% for flashes and brief moments. This is not how it worked before this began.

EDIT 2, ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: I can play games just fine; but if I open iTunes, everything goes to pot. I play WoW and Counter-Strike:Source, and there is no evidence of a CPU or memory problem. I'm so confused.
