    I have absolutely no idea why this is happening, but my computer grinds to a halt after a while (10 mins or so). There is no way to resume anything. I just have to hit the reset button on the front of the PC to restart everything.

    It seems to be happening more with Firefox. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling.


    Many thanks,

    Michael
