Ok, great. I was afraid this was a forced reboot as used to be hapen with a vulnerabity on Windows 2000.

comment How can I fix a computer that is infested with malware and is extremely unresponsive?
If it's not malware, here's betting there's an issue with the graphics card.

comment Lots of disk I/O despite free RAM
Understood. I should probably move my stuff over to my quadcore during the holiday period. In the meantime, I forgot to mention that Eclipse sometimes hanged which along with Chrome seemed to bring the system to a crawl. I've turned off all visual effects in XP and reduced the options in the Eclipse.ini (-showsplash org.eclipse.platform --launcher.XXMaxPermSize 256m -vm C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_24/bin/javaw.exe -vmargs-Xms40m -Xmx512m). Fingers crossed, this seems to have reduced disk chatter by a big factor. Free RAM is about 295MB with Eclipse and a few Chrome tabs open.

You're right. The trick question would then be why was it working more smoothly before :) .

comment JPEG vs PNG vs BMP vs GIF
Good illustration. Watch out for artifacts caused by compression. I think JPEG like video compression formats has the problem where solid red zones will tend to "bleed" on the edges.

Is it possible to access the filesystem (NTFS) in this way? RAID0 is striped data.

Ok, so what you suggest is booting a PC with the original raid configuration (Asus A7N8x deluxe controller). This leaves the question of whether the live cd will recognize the raid drive.
