    I have this post in Vista Forum; http://forums.techguy.org/general-security/1030968-not-sure-if-virus-something-2.html#post8189851
    I have not figured out what is going on & it is starting to look like my hardware is going bad. Yet I still think it is a software issue.
    The only thing I can add to that thread is that I have a lot of processes shut off because of the consuming of my CPU by whatever process, or handles, or threads are running that I am unable to detect, understand or see.
    Can someone please help me diagnopse the hardware onmy machine to eliminate it?

    In Sys Info I also see this; \DEVICE\HarddiskVolume2
    I am thinking I should only have one "volume" on here as I installed this sytem from the boot disk I made when I bought it. Am I misunderstanding something?

    Oh yea I have been freezing up a lot lately and it froze after typing all that above when I clicked on submit. I had to force a shutdown and reboot. Here we go fingers crossed.

    EDIT
    It IE8 keeps logging me out.
