Hi, a couple days ago I started having Netscape freeze up on every action.
Open a mail, freeze Netscape.
Today I opened Task manager and jumping between Processes and Performance I notice a couple things.
explorer. exe is running at a steady 22,000K of mem usage, netscape.exe at about 30,000K, but that brought along a svchost.exe assigned to SYSTEM, running at over 45,000K.
the svchost.exe shows no use of the CPU, But in one-minut cycles netscape.exe takes CPU usage to 100%.
So my system freezes for one minute, and the CPU drops to 2-8% for one minute.
I have run Norton Antivirus , Ad-Aware SE, and Spybot S&D scans. They all find nothing.

Thanks in advance for your help.
