I am using an older HP lap top & running windows 2000 Pro.

This lap top is starting to become very slow & slugish.

I run Trend Micro PC-cillin virus protection & & other spyware tools... so it is free of these problems.

What's happening is, when I am surfing to different pages or even using my msn mail client it hangs up & is always stopping.

As I watch the Task Manager/Aplications it showing "Not Responding"

This is happening more & more lately. :mad:

Any Ideas???

Thank you.

I never use it when I'm not connected to the web so it's hard to say.

Hi bonk,

Sorry for the delayed response. I am traveling

OK, it does not seem to be affecting other applications.

It is only affecting my Browsers, (FireFox, msn IE), & my msn email client. these are the applications that are always "Not Responding"

Sometimes it hangs up ("Not Responding") for only a few seconds & sometimes up to a minute or more.

I have come to find out that my fans are not working. I'm sure it is a heat related problem.

Thanks for your help & the links
