After an earlier posted problem which resulted in replacement of my mobo, repartitioned & formatted my HDD and reinstalled XP PRO with SP1 and relevant drivers...

problem i'm having is system is using 100% CPU time when just booted onto desktop...

When i move mouse, monitor takes seconds to refresh and i basically have to reboot to recover resources...

Ran AV scanner (avast, avg and p-cillen) all found no virii...

Have ran A2 for trojans and used Win Tasks to check what's running...

Loaded software is the same software i have been running for a year on old mobo...

is it possible for a CPU / RAM to be "half fried" which may be causing intermittant problems...

any suggestions, tia
