    I don't think that your OS is as important to the temperature as the processor is. You might want to look up the datasheets for your processor to see what the max and min temperatures are.

    Go to "Run" in the start menu, and type "dxdiag". On the main page it should tell you what processor you have (if it doesn't, check out the other tabs). Then just go to the manufacturers web site (in my caseintel) and look there for datasheets (some of which for the pentium 4 chip can be found here).

    I thought you said it was marked at 43 degrees. I wouldn't worry about the processor temperature too much, it probably is fine, unless you made some modifications to it (overclocking for example) did you do anything to mess with the internals of your computer?

    That's a prefectly normal temperature, especially if the room is at all warm. Of course, it would help to know what brand, model, and speed of processor we're talking about...
