It may well be some form of virus or spy-ware.
Not all anti-virus software is 100 percent effective Norton and Mcafee whilst being big brand names are not as effective as many people think.
It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message type programs.
It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.
You should rule out nasty stuff first.
for a free one its pretty darned good !
From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.
Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspect computer.
Run it but don't change any options just use what it offers.
When its done let it clean anything it finds.
Its where I always start with an infected machine.
As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying
Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and don't. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?
It may just be a "leaking application"
These are badly coded programs that don't release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.
May I suggest you download "hijackthis"
It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.
They will then give you recommendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.
Don't post the log here but follow the instructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.
If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot some things yourself that you don't want to run and disable them from hijack this.
Hope this gives you the information you need
It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.
