I recently pulled down my main computer to clean it out and replace the thermal material on the processor (was running above 80 C). I had problems with programs becoming unresponsive and thought this would help.
It did help the system run better. I can 3D game again and get pre-problem Frame Rates. However, it still shows an issue with responding after being up for about an hour. In Google Chrome, it will let me open a new tab but won't let me navigate using it. I type in an address and it stays on the same page. I can still surf on any tabs that were already open. It sometimes opens and displays pages opened from within tabs that were already open. When I try to close Chrome, it hangs. Opening Task Manager to close Chrome causes Task Manager to stop responding also.
The problem is not limited to Chrome. I've gotten it in Hoyle Card games, MS Word, etc... The system then stops opening new programs and eventually locks up completely.
Anyone experienced this before, and better, know how to fix it?

find the main ecu under the hood pull connection apart check for corrosion-clean any out -you can get a pin cleaning kit at autozone or advanced auto-plug back together -sometimes just pulling apart and re plugging can help with connectivity-Denny
try to reset the window rolling by sitting on the driver's seat and turn ignition on and from the main windows function buttons on the driver's door press at the same time both front windows down if are up to the end and still hold pressed the buttons for a second,then do the same for up with same time on hold.do the same if not respond until respond.
Try spraying some electrical contact cleaner into all of the switches on the main controll on the drivers door. With the vehicle running ignition on . It s likely just a bad connection water gets in between the window glass and the switches . If that dosn't work remove the main switch and clean the contacts and it will work again.
Down - undo zipper on one side about 12" just to take a little tension out
- undo latches - top down 2" - close latches (if you do not close them you are going to rip your top) - top down all the way, if you see a little circle and it is not folding just right, stop mid way and give it a light karate chop movement to help it fold properly *put the boot on for long drives, it will protect the top *store the car with the top up, it keep the material nice and properly stretched
Up - Windows down at least 75% - Top up and when it gets about 2" from being closed stop and open latches - Close rest of way, match up the pins and give it a little pull and snap the latches
I would have a body shop do it. They are usually $50.00 or more per hour cheaper than a delaership. The rubber seals I would by brand new from dealer, cause aftermarket seals are not reproduced to factory standards. When you dealing with a problem like this, go oem if possible. One other thing. If your car has a sunroof it's possible that the drain tubes are plugged up. When they get plugged up the water can run down the front winsheild pillars and on to the floor.
This is often the DME relay. This is the main computer relay. It is located in the fuse panel. Try pulling it out and putting it back in to clean the connections. If you can, try one from a running car to see if it fixes the problem.
If it runs down highway fine, but just stalls when off throttle, turning, heater on, etc., I'd pull I.A.C. motor off and clean with throttle body cleaner & retry it. Clean port it came out of at same time too. if it cures it even temporarily, and does it again, replace IAC motor.
Here are all the drivers you will need.

It was very srange, but all the contacts inside the switches of the main power window console (mounted in driver's door) were covered with soot.
I have disassembled the switch and cleaned the contacts. All functions well now.
The problem occured on a car that is used very rarely, that was most probably the reason of the sudden failure of the system.
Replacement of the main power windows switch would do the same but I have saved the expense this time. Hope the repair will last until I will sell the car.
