hi,
I recently installed a winTV card in my computer, ever since that I have noticed that when I press ctrl, alt and delete, the cpu usage appears to be 100% full whenever I try to open an mpeg file I have recorded from the TV card. it is a pentium 4 2.8 ghz processor.
Any ideas on what might be the problem?

Open Task Manager, select the Processes tab, and click the CPU column heading. Then post the top percentage processes and their values, so we have something to work with.

explorer.exe has a cpu value of 98,
task manager has a value of 1 and the remaining
1 keeps switching between system and iexplore.exe
