    I recommend you seek out one of the sites that specializes in WoW problems - many good pointers.

    I have the same problem as you. Game has run fine until about 2 major patches back, where my framerate has dropped, and the computer has been suffering from the occasional bout of 100% CPU usage and slowdowns/crashes, though this affects other games, not just WoW. Might be a windows patch causing it in my case... stupid Vista.

    You might need to reinstall Windows. How long has it been since you last did a reformat and reinstall? If it's been more than about 1.5 years, you should do that now.

    welll i got windows xp a while back in about 2004 but would it help very much if i did do a reformat, cause if it did i will do that might take a while but worth a shot. Also i might just get a new pc and move my motherboard and video card over, that should work need something cheap and has a good processor
