Mysterious Stutter Solved

My PC started to stutter, the mouse pointer, typing, programs, all would repeatedly freeze every few seconds.

Task manager showed CPU usage, but not from any program, so I ran 'Process Explorer' which showed usage by 'Interupts'.

The problem turned out to be the IDE DVD Drive ! Disabled it from the 'Device Manager' and the stuttering stopped.

It may actually be the motherboard IDE at fault, so got a SATA DVD drive, which also gets rid of the chunky IDE cable 😀
