Weird 100% CPU Problem

Hi all,

I have an AMD 3500+ Venice overclocked to 2.5ghz. For some reason, some programs (e.g. Itunes) are working fine, and then they suddenly decide to go crazy and use up all my cpu. Everything then clogs up and I have to restart. I downloaded some beta nvidia drivers earlier (I have a A8N-Sli Deluxe MB) would that have anything to do with it?

Thanks for any advice.

The sensible thing to do would be to eliminate the problem by firstly undoing the overclocking and testing and then uninstalling the beta drivers and testing.

ok - as all benchmarks showed my oc as stable, i assumed that wasnt the problem and I kinda have uninstalled the nvidia drivers but not sure if Ive done it totally.. .

I will make sure i do both of those things though.
