Update your SevenForums System Specs User CP

The problem started while I was browsing CNN's homepage last night...the mouse icon stared flickering, and any actions I took (clicking a link, etc) would be completed a minute or two later.
I built my computer about 2 years ago and have had no problems. Nothing has been recently updated or installed, nothing downloaded...I have no clue why this would start out of the blue, AND why it would affect the performance to the point where the only way I can use Windows is in Safe Mode...even switching to the basic color scheme doesn't provide smooth performance.
Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.50 GHz
4.00 GB RAM (2.99 usable)
Gigabyte G31M-ES2L motherboard, using onboard graphics (don't use PC for gaming)
I'd appreciate any help that can be provided. Thanks in advance.
Note to mods: I posted this here because I found other threads in this forum about this warning message. If this belongs more in another forum, please move it. Thanks.
