U installed anything to make this happen do u think? Drivers etc

Also this could be a sign of a virus or spyware. Make sure u check for trojans, worms etc. My brother had something similar was a pain to get rid of, his froze when using the net (100% cpu usage etc).

Check the task manager and make sure nothing is running that isnt supposed to be, if ur unsure of a task name google it, or ask here

Could very well be malware. Try a checker to see.

www.avast.com do a good small free virus checking tool that also finds malware. I believe hte program is on the bottom left as u log onto that site. Also Microsoft have a malicious removal tool every month, shud get it in the updates. No idea if its any good.
