On my desktop, I get a major delay when opening IE or Mozilla - takes about 5-10 seconds before the homepage and other sites load up. The CPU Usage will automatically jump to 100% when loading up the homepage of IE/Mozilla, after loading it will settle back down to normal rates. Desktop info: XP Professional SP3 ESET Antivirus v5709 My CPU usage never exceeds past 40-60 while browsing the internet. Started experiencing this issue 2 days ago, didn't report until now since i thought this was an ISP-related issue - which I've already ruled that out, I can access IE/Mozilla quite perfectly without this issue. Already ran multiple full system scans with NOD with no detections at all, Also ran scans on Malware Bytes & Hitman Pro, also no detections. All scans were done in both normal/safe mode. While running in safemode, it seems that this delay doesn't occur.
