His specs:

Intel 2.4Ghz
768MB of ram (512,256)
nvidia fx5700 ultra

for him, the first 10 minutes or so of games are fine, but after that, it starts screwing up and he gets like 3fps in any game

he has 71.89 drivers and his card doesn't support temperature monitoringfor some reason

also, he says that almost any program he's in takes up 100% CPU tuilization

that is most likely the problem and tell him to keep the anti spyware updated and to use mozilla from now on cause i don't near as much spyware since i started using mozilla

I agree with Woot. Make sure theres enough cooling and it runs at a good temp.

I doubt spyware can cause that much of a problem... Unless he hasn't scanned for it in oh... 5 years.
Virus - Nah, not if he has an updated antivirus software.

Have him update his mobo drivers, as it could be an issue there as well.
