Windows Ultimate on quad HP
I primarily use latest Eudora for e-mail and either IE8 or latest Firefox. Most of the time I am using Eudora.
I have been having problems with the system freezing up. Sometimes it runs most of the day without freezing and other times it happens soon after boot. the only way I can find to get past the problem is holding in the Power Button and then rebooting.
I have been trying to determine what is going on at the time of freeze so I keep task manager active on desktop.CPU usage stays between 25 & 50% sometimes a little higher and sometimes lower. It jumps high when opening eudora or firefox but drops back down. I have been keeping an eye on cpu utilization to see if I can spot a trend.
I was working on Eudora and the system began to freeze and I looked at utilization and it was bouncing between 0% and 1% which is a little weird and everything locked up.
Maybe this is a clue.
I am also having a problem with the message trusted installer has stopped working and was closed. I click OK and a minute or so later the message comes up again.
System freezing - CPU % drop to 0 or 1
