Process explorer time?

Yes sir, give it a shot. With Processor Explorer you can also look into what each process is and what's using that process, etc, in more detail than you could with Task Manager. So hopefully that may yield some positive results as well.

Ok, but what should I look for exactly in Process Explorer? I never used it.

Also, you mentioned something:
Quote:
Once you've done that, open Process Explorer and look for "Hardware Interrupts", if it's using 40-50% of CPU usage, it's likely related to hardware interrupts, which then you'd follow

Device Manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers -> Primay IDE Channel / Secondary IDE Channel -> Properties -> Advanced Settings -> Current Transfer mode.

If "Current Transfer Mode " is "PIO" delete this entry and restart the computer. Let Windows automatically automatically install it upon restart.

What exactly should I do?

Sorry, let me elaborate. Process Explorer is a more advanced version of Task Manager's "process" tab. It essentially breaks down each process and if you choose, you can get detailed information on what is using this process, etc. The unique capabilities of Process Explorer make it useful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.

When you open up Process Explorer, in the Process category, you'll see System Idle Process. Click the "+" for System and then you'll see "Interrupts". In the CPU category to the right, if this is using up to or more than 40-50% usage, you can try the following:
Quote:
Device Manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers -> Primay IDE Channel / Secondary IDE Channel -> Properties -> Advanced Settings -> Current Transfer mode.

If "Current Transfer Mode " is "PIO" delete this entry and restart the computer. Let Windows automatically automatically install it upon restart.

If this does not provide any positive results, I'd recommend your next step is a malware scan with Malwarebytes or a program of your choosing.

Interrupts is not using that much CPU power: around 3 to 6%.

Ultra DMA is the mode being used, not PIO.

I'm already running a scan with MBMA.

What'll be next?

If nothing shows up on a malware / AV scan, let's give a CHKDSK a try:
Quote:
Open the "Computer" window
Right-click on the drive in question
Select the "Tools" tab
In the Error-checking area, click .

No malware found.

How do I check CHKDSK's log?

After CHKDSK is finished, it will generate a log to C:/Windows/Logs/CBS/Cbs.log

You can attach that log here if you wish for analysis if it found unrepairable entries.

Wow. You should thank E-Peen for the amount of one on one support time he's given to you.

Hmm, alright. After taking a look at that log, let's go ahead and open Elevated Command Prompt (run command prompt as admin). Once you've done that, in Elevated Command Prompt, type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. Let me know how that turns out.
