Default strange problem...

thats right, or atleast i havent seen seen it before, seems that my computer make some kind of speedhack in windows, then it goes back to normal but this happens every 10 or 15 seconds!!!

i have formatted my harddrive one time and reinstalled windows for like 6 times and it doesnt seem to stop the speedhacks, my system is

AMD XP 2000
512 MB RAM
ATI Prophet FDX 8500 LE
Creative SB Audigy

it worked perfectly well but now (and it has been for a long time) it has been like this for i don't know for how long...could it be dust or something in the fan or a virus? info appreciated

Not really sure this will help any.XP dosent support Large Hard drives.XP SP 1 does.You sure your hard drive isnt pausing instead of speedhack.Intel Application Accelerater helped my 160 gig hard drive stop pausing so bad.
