    Hi guys. I have a problem with my windows.

    It's kinda hard to explain but as I wrote on the title, my windows is freezing periodically. It just happens every 1~2 minutes, and the freezing lasts about 1~2 seconds.

    And curiously, during that freezing, when I see processes tab on taskmgr, all cpu usage is dropping to 0% except system idle process. In other words, contrary to most freezing, which the cpu usage of some processes goes 100%, this problem is just opposite situation.

    I can't figure what is wrong. I used KAV 7.0 to scan my whole PC if there's any viruses, but it says it's all fine. I removed some spywares by AdAware but it doesn't helped my situation. And, there were no suspicious processes when I looked into taskmgr.

    What should I do? I don't wanna format my pc.. :(

    Please help me.

    Intel E2140 (Dual Core)
    1GB RAM
    GeForce 6600 GT AGP
    Seagate 7200.10 SATA HDD
    Windows XP SP2

    ps: Sorry for my clumsy english. I'm living in Japan so I can't speak english well. Please tell me if there's any sentence that is hard to understand.

    You might check your event viewer for clues. Maybe something useful was captured in the System or Application logs.
