Hi guys,

I had this problem about two months ago, got help from you all and finally couldn't take it and decided to reformat the whole drive. The problem is that the computer, hp pavilion; running windows xp prof., is now running very slow, and it idles at around 16%-45% all the time. Further, if I open a new program, it jumps right to 90% or more. The system seems to have problems running several programs at once and the music, whether from media player, or loading up, is always choppy now.

This problem started about three days ago, and I haven't done anything to the system, minus downloading music, since I reformatted. I've been running a fire wall and a anti-virus program and an anti-spyware program since the beginning. I have done several virus scans from online, and nothing. I really want to figure out what is up, as reformatting again, seems like it will only occur yet again. Any ideas.

Oh, I have noticed, in Windows explorer, under local computer, most of all the files there have really long names, e.g. 0112a3e9d348a3d54a82. And inside each of these folders is a single word document. Hope that helps.

Thanks, anything would be useful!

It was for a bit, I did a system restore and everything was fine, but the pc is starting to slow again, which means from experience its only a matter of time before it all goes down the tubes.

The one thing I am noticing from before and now is the windows update KB927978 update keeps wanting to be installed, but doesn't seem to actually install itself. Could this be the problem? How would I go about fixing this?

Thanks
