    For about a week and half now, I've been having trouble with my system, because it constantly hovers at 50% CPU usage, resulting in a lot of hiccuping and problems. This followed shortly after my computer experienced sluggish startups and stalls at the windows splash screen. I'm not sure if the two are related but I wouldn't be surprised if they were. I'm running with a dual core processor and I've found it is probable that 100% of part of the processor is being taken up, and I've reseached many threads regarding this, but to no avail. I've scoured the system for malware and viruses with AVG, online scans, ad-aware and spybot search & destroy and all cleared were my temp internet files. All the system processes seem to be running normally. The only processes that takes about anything noticeable is the system idle processes. It registers taking up between 95 and 98 of the CPU, which from what I've read is normal. So this leaves me stumped and my last known effort beside you guys and more research is to contact AMD. But here is a HiJackThis log, maybe it'll shed some light that I cannot see. Thank you in advance.

    Hello again. I just start up my system and it can't start up the windows firewall. Keeps saying "windows cannot start the "windows firewall/inernet connection sharing (ICS) service." I'm not sure if this is related, a new problem to deal with, or a just an anomaly.

    Thanks a lot for that info. I restarted after going back to bed =P ... and the firewall was fine so may have just been a fluke, but for safety I'm re-running virus and malware scans.
