Default whats going on with this COMPUTER!?!?!

Can someone help me out please..

idk what is up with this crap but for the amount of money i put into this thing i shouldnt see ANY hold ups...seriously

Applications sometimes take longer then normal to load up...I has World of Warcraft randomly freeze on me about 5 times...im really getting aggrevated with this computer...Counter-Strike 1.6 goes to load to a server and right before i connect it freezes...

The computer doesnt freeze...i can aly+ctrl+delete and cancel the program but seriously...i mean sometimes like ill open a Internet explorer, start up Steam, and try to like close AIM at the same time and it will lock up sometimes...Isnt my computer suppose to handle Muti-tasking..?

Do i have a Virus?
Do i have Spyware?
Is it because my computer is overclocked?

I had my CPU over clocked to a 3.2(8x400) and i thought it might be that so i declocked it to a 3.0(9x334) and doesnt seem like anything changed...

and someone please help me out. I posted before and someone said to try this Tune up thing and idk if it worked or not but i mean ive cleared out like 30 GB of my HD ive tried to Defrag, Disk Clean up, everything..im seriously STUMPED!

I'd do a mem check.
What are your system temps? Put your e6600 back to default speed. Then see if you still have problems.

temps are rather high for such a low oc. You are using stock cooling?

If mem test results are good, then maybe a reformat and reinstall of os? Just make sure you back up.

I definitely know about a hot house. This morning at 8am my house thermostat read 30c. My pc temps idle where 41c. Anyway, I'd put your pc at stock speeds and see what happens.
BTW, I too have as5 on my stock hsf. Good luck
