Hi Friend,

my system has a P4 2.8 with 1GB RAM and 96MB shared memory..... When browsing certain web pages my processor jacks it speed to max...this also happend when i run certain movie clips... MY OS is Win XP pro SP2....

When this happens i cannot scroll through the web page or move a window (it doesnt freeze but sort of lags in movements across the desktop).....

WHy thos happense? how can i fix it?

You probably have a background process hogging all the CPU cycles. Bring up Task Manager and look at the Processes Tab to see what's running.

I am guessing the you are using Internet Explorer. Try switching to Firefox to see if the problem goes away.
