    It seems these two processes randomly jump to abour 30% cpu usage every 2 minutes.... and when they do, the sound gets all crackly, video lags behind, and the mouse moves erratically... anyone experience this?

    By the way, I have extensively tweaked the system using the tweaks found in these forums, but it was happening before I started doing them. I've turned off many resources, startup processes, etc.

    1) Scan for virus and spyware (the latter especially)
    2) Look in msconfig and see if there is something starting with your system you didn't expect to see.
