Having problems with your Computer Processors ?

I have an amd anthlon 1.61 ghz processor and 1 gig ddr1 ram. running xp pro and it boots up to windows just fine but will max out processor and the lock up mouse and all. i can open task manager and see my processes at 100%. it just stays there until it freezes up and hd light stops working letting me know that the complete system has frozen up.


Answers :

Have you any virus protection on the PC? Viruses and malware will cause what you see. Also, check the task manager to see what programs and processes are running, and look for one that is hogging the CPU. Also, if running out of hard disk space, the virtual memory swap will do the same thing.
