Help me please! This is getting outrageously annoying. I can't figure out why my flipping cpu is getting random loads of 50% or Higher causing my computer to "Hitch" or freeze for a second or two, Now I just reformatted my comp last night, and I'm still getting this problem. I'm averaging at the moment of a constant 20% CPU Load. I can't figure out what process is doing it. I went to the task manager, checked all the loads, there was nadda on the SVCHOST processes. Yes i Said Processes, because I have like 10 different ones. I'm running windows vista 64 bit home premium. I can't figure this out. HEEEELP!:(

Do you have that same problem when you're disconnected from the internet?
Are you running a wireless network card?

I'll figure something out I think it might be hardware related rather than in the os.
