    Processor spikes?

    Every couple of minutes Giga shows a HUGE processor spike, even when nothing is playing. If something is playing of course the audio goes to hell for a moment. No other programs are running at the same time.

    Opening Task manager shows these moments as svchost.exe spikes. I have tried uninstalling Norton Utilities and Anti-virus completely, and turning off every Service I can, but still no luck ...

    I do have Norton Ghost installed, but with no scheduled tasks at all.

    Any ideas about what the problem could be?

    P4, 3.2 Ghz, 2 G Ram, SP2...

    Thanks,

    Alan
