hi guys/gals...

my computer is always running and it would use some CPU and it would just go up. its very very annoying. i mean i would be playing counterstrike and suddenly it would slow down for bout 2seconds and then it goes back to normal. u know the feeling like when you rplaying a game, then norton decides to scan for virus. yea same thing but it does it at 30second intervals at 2seconds in duration. please help me. if you guys want to take close look at the mpg, that screen shot was taken of my bottom right task bar. something would pop up for a brief moment. It looks to me like some sort of codec thing, but when i go to processes and look at what stuff jumps out, it says msmsgs which is msn messenger. please help. its getting very annoying. the only way that i found to disable it, is to cancel ccApp.exe (ctrl+alt+del). please help me. thx.

did you look in Norton's logs to see what it was scanning for?

also open up run + type:

eventvwr.msc

have a look for any strange events around the time your computer freezes,

That icon looks like the one from an older version of Quicktime. Do you have Quicktime installed? I know that 'qttask' is a startup item installed by default, but I don't know that it has anything to do with this problem.

I used to have this problem when my hard drive was booting from an IDE controller in a PCI slot. Are you set up like that?

emm no i dont have my hdd hooked to the ide. i infact do have a raid controller onboard already so emm yea. i really dont know whats wrong. what i would do is i will put some screen caps of the windows task manager and the cpu usage graph when i log in tommorow.

its so annoyin feel like format but too much stuff to back up.

That icon is from a old verison of Quicktime as you can see by this shot. It may be slowing down your Windows XP computer. XP does not support such old verisons of QT. That verison looks more for Windows 3.1 or 95

For a better and XP compatable verison try 5.x or 6.x

Wait a Sec! I don't think he's talking about icons. I think he want's to know why the showing of inactive icons is slow (Well acording to the AVI)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
