Please people, i own a dell inspiron laptop running on an intel CPU T2050 @ 1.60 ghz, 798 mhz 0.99 RAM. The operating system is windows XP and i've been using it for almost a year now but i recently noticed that the computer has gotten slower. Now, when i play games, it runs at almost normal speed and becomes really slow. I checked the CPU usage from the task manager a number of times and it is now usually at a 100 percent even when no program is running.
Please i need to know what is wrong. At first i thought it was a virus but my AVG is always on and i update regularly which may mean it is not the work of a virus but i don't really know.
Anyone with ideas about this problem should please post them here and if possible, with solutions.
Expecting your replies.
