    I have XP Pro, Athalon 800 cpu runningat 1.05ghz, 768MB Ram (not DDR), 2 hard drives. My perplexing problem is the cpu takes almost all the usage whenever I do anything. It will max out while I've still got 400+mb of ram not touched? I've tried reducing the page file, but it shows the change I make (min 2mb max 8mb) but still alocates 1149mb total memory available???? Help, I'm over my head with this.:confused:

    When you do a ctrl-alt-del to bring up the Task Manager, under processes, which one is taking all this cpu time?

    A copy/paste of the HijackThis Scanlog might also be helpful in identifying problems:
