    I have no idea what caused this.
    All scans show my computer as being clean.
    My CPU usage is 100% after opening a web browser and stays that way after its closed.
    When I try and boot into safe mode, it freezes before WinXP finishes loading drivers (before the login screen, when the screen its still in text mode)
    Every time I turn off my computer the End Program window pops up, and it's rarely ever able to end the program. Usually I have to terminate whatever it was so I can shut the computer down.
    Last night when I attempted to shut the computer down, it gave me a blue text mode screen telling me that a serious error had occurred, that the system was corrupted, and that I would have to restart the computer to see if WinXP could recover. It did, and it gave me a link to a microsoft website which told me to backup all my files.

    OS: WinXP, Pentium 4 3GHZ
    Mem: 1GB Ram
    Video: Nvidia GeForce 6800 GS/XT (latest drivers installed)

    This morning I've everything SQL related because it wasn't being used any more.
    There is a System restore file but it was made before removing the SQL programs.
    Will restoring my computer to that point damage my computer or system registry?

    Download Process Explorer:


    Start it up BEFORE you launch the browser. When you start the browser, quickly minimize it and watch the results on the Process Explorer screen.

    This should identify the culprit.
