Vista 64 lagging randomly

Last response: in Windows 7

I'm running an AMD 3.2GHz Dual Core Black Edition, 4Gb Ram, Water cooled processor sitting at 40 degrees constant.

So I have been having this problem for quite a while and I can't seem to get if fixed. Vista will lag horribly and it won't resolve itself. I have to do a hard restart and then it works fine for an specified amount of time. It will also lag randomly in the middle of Counter Strike Source and I have to do a hard reset there as well.

I've checked numerous forums regarding this same issue, ran multiple virus/malware scans, registry cleaners, defragged hard drives and registry, repaired vista using the sfc commands. I've used AVG and I'm using Avanti now. Neither show any malware/viruses. I've updated drivers and the BIOS. I've narrowed it down to either the system idle process(i know what it does but it still sits around 48-80% while I'm using the computer) or explorer(which will also be up around 20-30%). I've tried copying and renaming explorer.exe and changing the registry. All I get later is a black screen to which I have to go through the task manager run command to switch the registry back to the explorer.exe. I've run HijackThis and I'm including the logs below. HELP!

Unless a Malware expert intercedes, you need to go to a forum like Malwarebytes, or bleepingcomputer and get some help.
