    Hi, my computer has been working great (up until a few days ago) since I last reinstalled Windows XP Professional SP2. Starting just a few days ago, my computer has been acting strangely. The first thing I noticed was that the F.E.A.R. expansion would freeze at the first splash screen when a few days before everything worked fine. I would have to restart my computer before it would respond, however my mouse would move around fine (clciking didn't work though). That was the only problem at the time though. Later, my computer freezed in just the same was as it did at the F.E.A.R. splash screen except this time I wasn't playing F.E.A.R.. Again, I had to restart my computer before it would respond to anything but mouse movements. As of yesterday it has been freezing about once every hour to the point where I have to restart, but there are three new things as well: In addition to the freezes I have been experiencing slowness and short, recoverable freezes when running a lot of programs (never had this before). The second new problem is that at (seemingly) random times, all windows will close and I will see only my desktop image with no taskbar or icons, and a few seconds later a blank, small window titled "Personalized Settings" appears for a few seconds then dissapears, at which point my taskbar and icons reappear but my previously opened windows do NOT reappear. The third problem is that in the games that do work (Unreal Tournament 2004 and Far Cry), my character will randomly start walking around and looking around as if I am moving the mouse around, but I'm not (lasts for a few seconds) and in Far Cry a lot of the textures are messed up (might be a problem with the game not my computer, I don't know because I just installed it yesterday).

    I have scanned for spyware, adware, and viruses with all the programs I know of (spybot, adaware, spyblaster, spysweeper, NOD32) with all the latest updates and none of them found anything.

    I am running Windows XP SP2 and here is a HiJackThis log from earlier today:
