Computer Processes too much

This is getting very annoying.........at exactly 32 second intervals, my computer "processes" for 1-2 seconds. You know that sound when you start the computer up or you launch an application, that low grumbling sound. How can I stop this?

I have spybot, adaware, and AVG, I'll run those and report back.

I would suggest also doing some basic maintenance starting with;
run chkdsk /f to confirm no file level corruption
uninstalling programs no longer used
run disk cleanup
run defragmenter
