I am having the strangest problem with my computer. I am running Windows XP my computer is a fairly new computer Athlon XP 2600, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HD. For some strange reason it repeatedly lags. It does not matter what programs are running, does not matter how many times I reboot my computer it always lags.

Allow me to clarify what I mean when I say it lags. It like it temporarily freezes up for 10 seconds or so. I cannot move the mouse, the keyboard does not work, nothing works for about 10 seconds, after which time it unlocks its self and continues to work as normal. And then a few minute later it lags again. I cannot figure out what the HE*L it is doing. I consider myself to be very competent with computers, I am 100% sure I do not have a virus or Trojan or Spyware, I have already eliminated those causes. I have all the latest patches from MS, yet the computer freezes up all the time, then unlocks its self, what could be happening here?

Now I had WinXP installed on this computer before and it worked fine, then I formatted the HD and Re-Installed windows. It was working great, the all of a sudden one day it just started freezing up on me. I thought okay the computer is frozen, probably I have to do a hard reboot, but then it unlocked its self and it keeps doing this over and over again. I am not getting and BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death), and my event logs show nothing abnormal. I have not connected any new hardware, or installed any new software.

What could possibly be making my computer act so strange? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
