Firstly a background into my PC:
Dell Dimension PIII600 with 384MB RAM
Windows 2000 with SP1 and all the extras installed like IIS etc.
I have two partitions, both Win 2K, one for .NET beta and the other for my regular stuff. All NTFS partitions.
I have a problem when accessing the internet with my regular partition which has:
Visual Studio 6 (Ser Pack 3)
Office 2000 Developer
Norton 2001 (Firewall and virus)
SQL server 2000 client
I use outlook express for my mail, btw.
Okay now for the problem.......
After surfing for some time (varies) or downloading email, I suddenly cannot access any more pages or download my email (pop 3 error). Ive tried both my ISP's who are reliable at it doesnt seem to be them.
Having loaded task manager, Ive noticed my cpu is 77-100%, and the two files causing this are:
Any suggestions to this.
Ive just re-imaged my pc, to this configuration, and due to many reasons I have re-imaged to this spec on many occasions, but this is the first time that something like this has ever happened.
