The problem with my dell d610 is that it freezes frequently for only a spilt second.  I can still operate the computer, but this constant freezing becomes very annoying.  If i am simply browsing the internet it doesn't do it.  The second i  decide to play music or a video the computer starts to do the constant freezing every couple seconds for a split second. I believe that something is suddenly causing my computer's resources to be used up because when this constant pausing starts the cpu usage always shoots to 100% and stays there.  When I open I tunes and play a song the entire computer just moves very sluggish and the music hardly plays.  If I am playing music I can barely do anything else with the computer.  I have followed the virus scan procedures from this site and I it finds no viruses in any of the scans.  My virus scan is AVG and it does find this one error everytime I start the comptuer that it tries to delete but it comes back each time.  The file is c:\windows\system32\lmiinit.dll.  That is the only change that has happened since the problem started happening.  This problem developed a couple of weeks ago.  The programs that I had and used worked fine and then one day this problem started happening. A few weeks ago I was able to listen to music and surf the internet at the same time with no problem.  Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

I recommend going to the Security and Viruses forum and post a HijackThis log. There might be something in hiding that's evading your attention and we might spot.
There could be a thousand different reasons why the computer is behaving this way, so it's best to start with the simplest step of them all.

Good luck
