Disable UAC... turn off the sidebar... go to basic theme... Don't use a Virus scanner... There's not much you can do with Vista to change the way it runs. Most computers I see do exactly what you said, even if they are pimped out.

If it is CPU usage... track down the process that is eating it all

Press

CTRL + SHIFT + ESC

It will bring up the task manager....

Go to the Performance Tab

Click on Resource Monitor button at the bottom.

Click on the gray bar for "CPU"
It will drop down and show you your processes.
You have the option of sorting by average CPU usage, and real time.

Post it here so I can tell you what to do... the process name and perhaps the location.

It sounds like it could be an Add-In that you might have installed on Facebook or an Add-On in Firefox.

It's possible you may have spyware installed too.
