Hi there everyone .. Merry Christmas

I am using windows xp sp2 .
what has happened is since a few days my computer is starting to lag very badly.
it's taking more than 3 minutes to startup.
what's happening is my processor is being used but no program uses it, and the system idle process shows 99 %
And all the programs that i use start very slowly. And when i transfer files from one drive to other it takes too much time.
the games are also lagging very much.

Can someone please tell me what might be problem and what can i do to solve it ?

It's normal for "System Idle Process" to be at 98 - 99% when your computer is sitting idle and you're not doing anything with it. Some people misunderstand it to mean the processor is running at 98 - 99% when in fact it's just the opposite.

Why are you still using XP SP2 and haven't upgraded to SP3? You're not going to receive monthly security-related updates and fixes from Microsoft until you upgrade to SP3.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4.

After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

After it's been installed, start it and then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan is finished in less than 30 seconds, a log file will appear.

Save that log file.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire log file here.
