The Processor Fan is working fine

    can you supply the PC Spec - cpu speed and memory installed.
    also have you looked at the startup programs and see if you have a lot using resources

    for 98, ME, XP
    start>
    run>
    msconfig>
    startup tab
    have a look at the programs listed - details available from here

    for win2K you need a program - I use this one

    or msconfig
