Okay all of the suddeen my computer started slowing down periodically. My mouse cursor will hang sound will stutter, and other random things. I have noticed when these slowdowns occur the System process will take as much of 79% of CPU usage. This just started happening and i noticed this morning an occasional soft ticking sound coming from my PC. I need help!

EDIT: I have taken the following actions:
- Adaware SE
- Spybot 1.3
- Windows Defrag
- Hijack This! (log follows)

actually... i uninstalled and reinstalled the driver for my network card as i had narrowed the network connection down as being the culprit as everything ran fine when i disabled the card and i had somewhat suspected that it was network related... and it seems to be working okay once again. I was afraid that my card was about to die, but yeah it seems to be working. Has anyone else had a similar problem? I'd like to know... so for now... we'll call this solved...
