    ok so your cpu is using 100% is it causing other problems other then annoying you it's at 100%? and when you open task manager what program does it say is using all the cpu explorer or other stuff?

    ok, but if you start doing other work is it slowed down by this? or does it appear to be working normally? I've had instances now and then where explorer is using 100% of the cpu but as soon as I start doing other stuff it goes back to normal

    yes.... nothing can be opened until i close explorer

    existenz: u reinstall mean just ran setup without formating or a fresh install after format?

    is this coz by my dual boot system, win98 and winXP ?

    The System file checker will repair any corrupted files
    you might want to try this before you reinstall

    sfc /scannow
