    My computer has been getting very slow lately, and when i try to watch videos on either itunes or windows media player, the CPU usage is so high (sometimes sitting around 85% and above), that I need some help maybe removing some of the processes that are not supposed to be running or might be malware. also, my startup is very slow. i have windows xp home edition, i have mcafee virus protection and i occasionally run Ad-Aware as well as AVG anti spyware. please help!
