I hope someone can help. My computer just went completely wonky last night. It has been running fine, though a little warm (I'll be taking it in in December to get the overheating problem dealt with) - however the temp was fine. Suddenly I had programs start completely freezing up on me and they would not shut down even using task manager. I had to power the computer down by holding the power button. This happened about 4 or 5 times. My USB ports constantly kept going up and down and my touchpad mouse kept freezing up forcing me to (yuck) wet my finger to get it to read, or put much more pressure than I should have to... and sometimes I just had to wait for it to decide to read.
I could only get skype and my scanners to run without freezes (skype was iffy - but I needed it to get assistance from a friend, so I pushed it). I ran: AVG 7.5, AVG Anti-Root Kit, AVG Anti-Spyware, SUPER AntiSpyware, Ad-Aware 2007 and Windows Defender through the night. Most came back clean, but a couple (the spywares and the Ad-Aware) came back with a few things which I got rid of.

The whole time, the computer would not shut down properly as I tried to get it so that I could shut down and start clean instead of the hard shut down. I had to use the power button each time. I was unable to get it to boot into safe mode either. A friend helped me go through my start up programs and get rid of a few bad ones and then got me to attempt a system restore. When that was done, the computer shut down and was able to restart perfectly for the first time - but the restore failed. Since it restarted fine however, I left it be.

I would leave it, however the USB ports still aren't working (I have a headset plugged in and the light says they aren't), and my CPU is acting oddly. It tends to run a bit high as I run a lot of programs - but the task manager reads odd for it. I paused the CPU read on the process tab to see exact numbers and this is what I got at two separate times:

CPU usage: 60%
System Idle Process: 79
CPU usage: 100%
System Idle Process: 92

I've downloaded (properly I hope) HJT and run it to get a log.

I'm sorry to be a pain, but things are getting worse.
I'm having to do hard reboots (holding the power button) more often. Sometimes it is because the computer has frozen and it will not let me shut down any other way, or even if I tell it to shut down via the start menu or ctrl+alt+delete, it only works a small portion of the time.
When it freezes, the CPU stops updating, but doesn't say that the programs have gone unresponsive. The mouse will not move and I can't type even if in a field. The freezes can last from a few seconds to about 30 to 45 seconds. Sometimes they are sporadic and rare, sometimes they are frequent and only give me a few seconds of functionality at a time.
Also, after a bit - I don't know if it's too much typing or what - my keyboard stops responding to typing. It starts acting as a command thing - it'll cause windows to open or something, but won't actually type.
I don't know if CPU is involved. I've had it freeze showing System taking up 99% of the CPU, but also had it freeze showing only 2% of the CPU being taken up.

Please help and give me an idea of what can be done. I'm really starting to get desperate and consider a reformat. I don't want to have to deal with that, but I'm starting to wonder if there is anything else.
