    Just purchased two months ago a new PC, Dell XPS, and from time to time after I have been out on the web and I close explorer the system hangs… Another words, slow cursor movement and I cannot click on any other icons on the windows main page. If I check task manager it appears the system is using the CPU 50% through system idle process of 50% and Explorer at 50% or more – no other applications or services appear to be using CPU cycles. The Applications tab in task Manager shows no applications running. I have to reboot to restore system functionality. If I go to Task Manager after the reboot “System Idle Process” runs at about 99%.

    Event viewer generally is not showing any problems or “System Hang” problems… The only issue I can see that is a “Warning” near the time this happens is Event ID #32026 & 32068, both related to The Faxing service that can’t start due to a hardware setting – one is missing area code. Modem settings are all blank and are not set up at all because I do not have a modem installed.

    Any suggestions how to troubleshoot??
