Hello,

I'm experiencing an issue where after the initial boot-up, after about 5-10 mins of using a program or IE or anything, eventually the computer starts moving extremely slow, to the point where the TaskMgr takes about 5-7 minutes open when pressing alt+ctrl+del.

When it opens I notice that CPU usage is at 100% mostly with explorer.exe, :thumbsup: and usually stays that way.

Does anyone know a way to troubleshoot or trace what is the cause of the jump of usage?

The computer is running XP home.

thanks in advance for any help given!
M.O.
