Hi:
I am a newbie, but my computer after running on the internet for about 2-3 hours, the mouse beings to slow down, I checked the system monitor the kernel:processor usage is between 95%-100%, my rambooster monitor show my CPU usage 98%-100%.
I begin closing all of my windows, but the computer continues to be slow, I have no choice but to shut down the computer and restart.
:confused:
Then after my computer restarts, everything is back to normal, CPU usage 15%-25% up and down depending on what I am doing, the mouse has returned to it normal self.
What happened? What is the cause? Can it be prevented in the future?

HP Pavilion
AMD 333 Mhz
256 Meg Ram
4.3 Gig hard drive, with 2 gig of free space
Windows 98 version 2
McAfee Virus scan updated weekly
AT&T cable modem for the internet.

Thanks for your help and assistance.
Steven, newbie

Thanks for your suggestions

Speedo and der robe:
Thanks for the suggestions, you are correct, I now noticed that the computer slows down more often after my daughter has used the yahoo instant messenger, etc. But I do delete the icon from the system icon tray, logoff, and exit. Maybe it will be better if I told her to use her own computer.
Thanks again, for the info
Steven.
