Question about Computers & Internet
I have an assembled machine with Intel Pentium 3 processor – 700 Mhz with Intel 810 motherboard, 40 GB hard drive. I have recently upgraded the physical memory from 64 MB to 192 MB. Though the processing speed has greatly improved, I have now started facing a problem of “hanging” system.
When I connect to the internet, the CPU usage dramatically increases from about 10-15% when offline to 100% with the applications like iexplore.exe (35-40%), explorer.exe (15-20%) and rundll32.exe (25-30%) eating up most of the CPU usage, even if I run just one application (say www.bbc.com) with Internet Explorer 7. This leads to the freezing of the system. I try and not to open too many applications but the system fails to sustain even a single application.
Things are cool when I am offline. Though I upgraded the RAM last month, things have started screwin’ up for the past 3-4 days. I have already tested for viruses and there ain’t any. I would really appreciate if anyone can help me get out to this problem. A million thanks! I would truly value your support.
