    I've been experiencing some serious sluggishness lately, and browsed around and found that a process called Hardware Interrupts is frequently taking up all my CPU usage. The only changes I've made lately are installing World of Warcraft patch 3.02, changing my mouse (which I changed back), and reinstalling Steam. All the previous answers to this issue dont seem to apply in my case... and I'm in need of some help. Worst part is, I just bought this computer off of my friend, and already it's messing up. Here's what my Process Explorer looks like right now, with almost no processes running.

    Any advice would help.
    I'm currently running Window XP, not sure of all my specs for this computer tho...

    Oh, I also ran SmitFraudFix in case it was some kind of reg error.
