hello, Lately i have been having performance problems with windows xp pro sp2. My computer is a slot 1 667mhz p3 with 1 10.2 gig quantom fireball, 80 gig wdc, and 80 gig samsung, 256 ram, radeon 7000 64mb video card. Lately, when it boots up, it takes about 25 seconds to boot, then when it does, it runs fast for about 10 mins, for those 10 mins, it runs 0-2% idle. Suddenly, the 10 gig reads like crazy, the cpu goes up to about 40-50% idle, and the page file usage goes anywhere from 600-999mb. After a while, it cools down. I scanned my compter for spybots with spybot, and i scanned my computer for viruses with avast, and still didn't do anything.
