Using another PC, download MEMTST86 from memtst86.com follow directions to burn it to a CD. Run overnight in your Dell. If you have two memory modules, try removing one then the other and see if the problem goes away. Sounds like a hardware problem.

After reading your problem I came across some interesting references about roxio and agent.exe.
Seems agent.exe is used by many programs to update themselves over the internet, and it was giving a lot of people headaches by using 70% or more of their CPU, like yourself.
So, I wanted to send you a few quick thoughts on how to hopefully fix your situation.
First, there were complaints about stuff trying to install itself on and on, and it was because there were command lines in the STARTUP MENU calling upon them to install every time windows starts.
So to try to fix this if its happening in your case........
Go to start>run>and type in msconfig and click ok.
Now click startup and uncheck these items.
'ISUSPM Start Up'
Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
Quick Time Task
Then click apply, then ok and restart your computer. When windows starts, you will see a window saying that changes were made to the configuration utility. When you see it, click on the little white box saying not to show this any more.
And if you really miss not having something you unchecked, you can always go back there and recheck it!
Maybe now you will have the chance to purge all things Roxio from your system.
Best of luck!!

Download the free program again and this time choose to save it to your desktop so you can find it easier or run it from the download location instead of saving.
