    Did you install any hardware or software when this started happening?

    Do you use a spyware/adware program?

    Is your windows login password protected?

    Are you using a firewall?

    Have you tried booting into safe mode and see if the pc still "Pulses"? go there and do what it says and post the log here as a txt file.

    Also you stated you have 512MB RAM, is that 1x512 stick or 2x256 sticks?

    I await your reply.
