My Sony Vaio CPU is acting strange!

My first post into Geekstogo and I'm nervous. My PC is a Sony Vaio small laptop, VGN-T2XP. Its old---but not as old as me (I'm 78). Recently although start up is fast enough, it takes an age to get into a webpage, and often cuts me off if I take any action. Bitdefender virus protection, scanned every couple of weeks, no problems showing.Its now reaching the stage where it is vrtually unusable. Spare memory sems O.K., 35 per cent free on one partition, 25 per cent on the other. I am sending this post from another computer, my sony would have cut me off by now. But the CPU. Ive been watching the task manager, the usage is virtually always up at 100 percent and when I open there are often over 150 processes at work. As I watch they slowly drift down to around 65 (after about three minutes) and then, if I'm lucky, my laptop comes back to life and does a bit of work, for a minute or two. Ive tried cutting out everything I can on the taskbar, there is nothing much left.Also the CPU (or something inside the PC) is running very,very hot and appears to cool down if I just sit and do nothing. Any ideas? the cpu is an Intel Pentium M 1.2 GHZ. Am I just asking too much from a four year old? Mike

Hello again everybody. Its 24 hours since I first posted, 18 views, no replies. All the adjoining threads have had replies of one sort or another. Does this mean I have done something wrong in my post or is it just that the subject is too boring, or, unlikely, too difficult for anyone to answer? Seeing that this was my very first post, my computer confidence is now at NIL!!! Mike
