Re: computer slowdown - fried CPU?

Drivers can cause problems. I update my drivers just when I have problems with games or other s**ts. No problems no need for update.
Viruses can slow down PC's.
Firefox as well. When I work on a slow pc I never use Firefox. Java & flash (specially the last one) can slow down very much a pc.
Firewalls & antiviruses can slow down.

Your CPU temperature can be monitored with Speedfan. If your CPU has a temperature of something over 70C (I think AMD supports higher temperatures then Intel so I can't tell you exactly) you have something to worry about.

When your computer is slowing down look into your task manager and see if any of the working processes is using more CPU then is should be.
