Random drop in performance.
While doing day to day activities, my computer will slow down to unusable
speeds, for about 20 seconds, then go back to normal performance. My drivers
are up to date, and Windows Update offers no more updates available.


Windows Vista - Home Basic
Intel(R) Celeron(R) D CPU 3.46GHz
1.50GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT

When you get the slowdown, open Task Manager and see what is taking up all
your CPU cycles. You can also run the free Process Monitor:

Re: Random drop in performance.

How many programs are running on your taskbar

performance

Re: Random drop in performance.

How many programs are you running? Do you have an antivirus software? It
might be that you've just got infected. Do you do anything before the
lockup happens? Might be a corrupt program.

Re: Random drop in performance.
I have been having a similar problem. When I open up my task manager it says
that 98% of my cpu is idle. My cpu is idle and my comp barely works. It also
only seams to happen while gaming. Although thats pretty much all I do so im
not sure.
