Windows 7: System Interrupt while downloading

System Interrupt while downloading


I recently installed windows 7 Home Premium x64 from XP (did a custom ijnstall) Everything seems to be fine until I download. (Downloading my games from steam and even browsing youtube)

My CPU will randomly shoot up to 80 - 100% and my linksys usb internet adapter will stop functioning and disconnect me from the internet. I have to reboot my computer to get everything back to normal. I am at a loss at what to do. I also noticed that the high usage in my CPU is coming from system interrupts. Anyone out there know solutions to fix this?

Yes I agree it sounds like a driver issue. I would seek out updated drivers for all your card, sound card, linksys wireless adapter, etc
