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, 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!
