Hi all ;-)

About once an hour i get a freeze. The CPU goes upto 100% and stays there for about 4 minutes then it comes back down to normal and it unfreezes. I think its iexplorer.exe thats doing it.

What can cause this? Can a new Browser help like Mozilla? If the PC's overheats can this happen?

Give us some ideas please and i will give em a go as it is getting REALLY annoying now.

Thank you Jim
