Do a spyware scan, Michelle, with something like Super Anti Spyware and / or Malwarebytes.  It sounds like you might have inherited something which is hogging your processing power.  Have you tried Ctrl+Alt+Del to look in Task Manager, to see if anything is running at 90% or above?

Check Task Manager.  Something must be hogging resources.  Have you looked in Add / Remove Programs for anything new or suspicious?  Try Safe Mode, and see if that helps.

Reinstall IE8?  Or, better still, try Firefox.  Is this only happening when you use your browser?

I'm off to bed now, but maybe Sandra will have some ideas later?

I don't know if this is possible, as I haven't used IE for years, but can you uninstall IE8 and reinstall IE7?  Sorry, with the lack of other ideas, I'm stabbing in the dark a bit, Michelle.

I had a chat with Michelle on mesenger last night and we tried running sfc /scannow and then reinstalling IE8 using the ie.inf inside the windows folder that copied it over from her XP CD.
Neither of those worked.   :dunno:

She does have 75 processes running according to Task Manager  :o

Ouch. Anything that you could identify as a miscreant, Sandra?
