When I am just in e-mail or word processing the machine behaves normally but as soon as a download starts or I go onto the internet the CPU usage goes to 75% and occasionaly has been 100%, the fans start making a loud noise and everything slows down. Please can any one help bearing in mind that I am not that computer literate?

Thanks

Does this only happen when you open Internet Explorer? Try a different browser (Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc) and see what happens. Let us know.

If you browsers go to 100% just sit their and do nothing for 4 or 5 minutes and see if it goes back down. If it does it could be programs scanning for updates because they are set on auto. Many programs default is check for updates auto and as soon as the internet opens they have their way with your computer.

That would not peg the cpu at 100%

Allan your right it should not use that much resources using the internet but the OP stated the internet causes the high usage. Their for knowing what is using the internet and now does it raise the percent to 75 to 100%. That question is still bouncing around in my little pea brain. (Botnet?)
