  1. When i start my pc everything is ok and when i look aroung the net after a while IE Starts using Using 100% CPU. When i go to do a restart sometimes i have to End Task IE 3 times.

    I have a P4 2.4, 512DDR ram, 64mbDDR vid card, 80 gig hard drive, and windows xp home with all the updates from MS.

    Anyone know how i can fix this.

    Thanks alot for any help.

    It seems like a Trojan Virus of some sort to me. i have come across this type of thing before and it was related to a Trojan, Run your Anti virus software if you have one, make sure the latest definitions are installed.

    Hope this helps

    Also download and install these two programs, who complement each other:
    Adaware and Spybot S&D
    Before you run each program, download their latest updates.
