Hi this is my first time posting, but my computer has developed a problem that is getting worse and worse. It seems to be accessing the CPU 100% every other second. First I thought is was to a fan going bad because of the constant noise it was making but I downloaded a Gauge that shows me the current use of the CPU it would look like this where CPU 100% access=* and 0%=_: *_*_*_*_*_*_ you get the picture. This only happens once and a while but when it does it can last up to a half an hour slowing everything down greatly. I have a custom built year old P3 450, 128 ram. I just donít know what to do to even start investigating the problem. The only thing running in the background is a virus scan program and when I disable it the problem still occurs. Please help if you can.
