CPU Usage 100% ALL THE TIME

Running Athlon 1ghz 1gb sdram, XP Home, 1x 40gb Maxtor 1 x 80gb IBM Voodoo 4 Graphics.

My machine seems to be running very slow, screensavers slow, opening display settings slow, opening programs slow.

I have IE open to do this thread and no other software, I do have Zonealarm running along with NAV and a few other things in the system tray but they dont effect it much as I have tried closing them down individually and they dont make any difference.

I could really do with some help sorting this out as it has only just started to happen and I cant asttribute it to any new hardware etc.
My temps are 44c cpu and 38 system.

Just out of interest should there be any settings changed as I have 1gb sdram in the bios, that sandra benchmarking utility suggetsed something but I couldnt understand it.

If I go quiet its because the misses is getting me to take the Christmas tree down.

Cheers all

How would I know if it isnt working?
I dont get any error beeps on booting up.

Don't worry bout that just look at the cpu column of the list and identify which process is using a lot of the cpu
