please help me. i can't concentrate on school because of the problem with my PC

so the other day i cleaned my PC. video card, ram, heatsink and power supply. after that, i turned on my PC but im stuck in the windows xp loading screen. then i reinstall windows xp and it went fine. then i tried to check disk, disk clean up, advance system care clean, and tune up utilities clean. i rebooted and it went fine. then i used tune up's visual style and log on screen modification. after reboot my PC hangs again. so my suspect was tune up utilities. i uninstalled it, and reinstall windows xP again. it went fine again. i tried to install tune up but i was surprised to see an error saying "cannot install because some resources is not available". so i thought this is an OS problem.

just this morning i reformatted my OS just to give me a peace of mind. everything was fine then. i only installed AV, firewall and other essential cleaners. then i opened cabal online. after several minutes i logged out and exit. the game exited but the boarder margin of cabal window was still visible. i open and close folders and their margin boarder was also visible. so i end up with couple of folders stacked. i can't click start menu nor other items in the system tray. i opened task manager and i saw drwatsn32, OSE.exe, and couple of microsoft update exe.

and the worst of all, my AV just went disabled.

so is this hardware or software problem? i'm pretty sure my PC is clean from virus since im an IT student too. sorry if i have pretty long story. tomshardware is the only website i know that is reliable.

amd athlon x2 64
geforce 8400GS
2gb RAM DDr2
avast AV
comodo FW

My 1st though would be hard drive problems.

Download the hdd utilities from the manufacturer website, use it to format the drive and start again.

List your hdd make and model and I can point you in the right direction.

i dont have problem currently. before, everytime i open and exit cabal online, my desktop hangs. and everything goes "not responding". but now i deleted drwtsn32.exe and everything is quite ok. i am observing though.

does drwtsn32 really eats all the PC's resources?
