CPU USAGE

Dear All,

HELP ! For some reason, lately my PC has really started slowing down when opening applications. The CPU USAGE found through Windows Task Manager often hits 100% at which point the PC pretty much freezes.

I virus check my machine every week through Norton and defrag as well now and again. The machine is an Evesham Athlon 1900 RK 512Mb 80Gb, there is plenty of disk space free.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might try and alter some settings to prevent this CPU problem occuring and grinding my machine to a halt.

Ps - I thought it might ne the mydoom virus but ran the download from Systemac and its not on my machine.

Thanks in advance

Dave
