    What OS? If NT-based, what process is using all the CPU according to Task Manager?

    That could be for a number of reasons. First, go to Start > Run, and type: chkdsk /f
    Answer "y" to whether a check should be done on reboot.

    Do you have incomplete avi movies on your machine? If so, that can do it. Any theming programs, like StyleXP or WindowBlinds? Corrupt themes can do it.

    This can be very hard to narrow down.

    You might also want to try a system file check. Go to Start > Run, and type: cmd
    At the command prompt, type: sfc /scannow
    (Be prepared for a lengthy scan lasting 20 minutes or so and be prepared to insert your XP CD if it asks and to press the "Retry" button many times. If you have a program that can keep your CD speed up to 4x or higher and won't let it spin down, like Nero DriveSpeed, that will eliminate pressing the "Retry" button so many times.)

    Check for viruses and spyware, also get the latest drivers for all of your hardware (especially the video).
