Programs run slow and processor speeds spike

I am having problems running programs on my VAIO XP sysytem. My processor runs at nearly 100% at times and I get very choppy action. I have 512 megs of ram and a 1.5 P4 chip - The problem seems to get worse the longer I run the program. Is there anything specific that causes this type of problem??:confused:

You can start taskmanager and in the processes tab you can see what is causing the high CPU-usage. Some versions of Norton Firewall for example sometimes cause 100% without reason.

well, the cpu-usage is from the programs running, but like I said it seems to get worse the longer I use the programs.

Someone mentioned something regarding memory dump once - any suggestions?
