      With the details you provided so far (I mean, none), there is no way someone can assist you...
      Answers to provide:
      1) what Vista version are you using? (including SP and 32/64 bit)
      2) is this a clean install or an upgrade? If an upgrade, from what OS?
      3) where did you got the installation media from?
      4) what hardware are you using? Is this a physical machine, or a virtual one?
      5) have you checked the Event log for reasons?

        Time for a rebuild me thinks.

          Try safe mode as well. This should restrict a lot of other things running.

            See what process is causing the CPU to spike in Task monitor. Check the processes running as well and any that sound dubious, do some research to check they are not viruses or spyware.

              Also, when in Safe Mode, you could try a system restore to a point before this happened.

                If you haven't done so already, download and install the SP1 for Vista. This has helped with some of the stability issues with Vista since it's onset.

                Aside from this, I would recommend backing up your files, in case you need to perform a reload (if the problem doesn't correct itself)
