dont think its made any difference. After the uninstall and install I didnt need to use FEBE to restore anything, it was all still there as before :dunno: unless I uninstalled it wrong.I even deleted the folders from explorer.

You may need to change to a new profile, Baz, but I can't tell you how to do that until I get back on my computer, and you'll need to be doubly sure that everything is backed up, as it will wipe all your bookmarks and settings.

The default profile is at C:\Documents and settings\<user>\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\Default.

That file, d6yvqopg.default is the one that needs to go, Baz. I'd uninstall, having backed up bookmarks and cookies with FEBE, then delete the program folder and that Mozilla one. Then re-install clean, and use FEBE to put your bookmarks and cookies back.

Wait and see time, then, Baz. If it starts again, check task manager and see what's eating the CPU.

well I dont know whats happening here. its still the same, cpu usage shoots right up when using FF. Tried all your suggestions.tried to download some new drivers for the graphics but the one I got seemed an older version that i originally had so I went back to the original.
even just a page refresh of this page sends it up but not in IE.

the driver I had originally was version 6.14.10.133   after the downlaod it was showing as 6.14.10.101  is that lower or not.Have to say with the 'new' driver the juddering had stoppedbut cpu usage was still up, when I went back to the original driver  juddering is back on this site and it takes an age to load.

Have Adblock plus disabled at the moment
