Hello I was wandering if any of you kind people may be able to shed some light onto a problem I have been having for a while now.
I am using windows XP and opening up new windows or tabs (especially ones with pictures or hig content eg facebook youtube) pushes the cpu usage extremely high. Randomly but guaranteed the pc will freeze up as if it is thinking then one of 2 things occurs 1. It will freeze meaning I have to manually switch the pc off. 2. The net will disconnect at which point I can reconnect it and carry on. I have tried COMBO FIX, and a few malware programmes to see if they found anything, I have tried rolling the pc back a few months to when it didnt happen - no luck. Ive de fragged, disk checked whiped old programmes etc. I dont think its the memory I currently have 992 MB of ram and dont run much on the pc. Its not the internet either we have another pc that works fine and the xbox hooked up which neither ever log off. Any help in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks. Matty.
