Ok, so here's the deal My cpu is going all haywire and computer is reacting really slow. When I play anything with windows media player, the cpu usage shoots up to like 90%, then fluctuates between 100% and about 70% until i shut wmp down... Same thing happens with outlook and ie sometimes. When I try to open up anything with ie while wmp is playing, it makes the mp3s or movies hiccup and studder. I have windows XP professional and a 1.15 (ish) GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and 30 GB hard drive. Could this all be because I have a slow hd? any suggestions would be appreciated Thanks!
