I am at a loss here. I have a HP desktop Windows XP (SP2). I have Pentium 4 2.6 Ghz Processor, 80G hard drive, 1G RAM.
My CPU usage spikes up (and stays up) at 100% whenever I load up any internet game...like Wolfenstein. I downloaded this program called "SpeedFan" which monitors the temp of your Computer. My processor reaches up to 52 Degrees Celcius and a little "FIRE" Icon appears next to the temperature. My computer will randomly crash (BSOD) and give me the message "BAD_POOL_CALLER", and "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I suppose these crashes are due to the 100% CPU usage and overheating? I have also realized no matter how many times I try....I cannot complete a full system scan with Norton Antvirus. It will either say at the end of the scan..."Norton could not fully scan your computer due to a serous error that has occured...or simply crash again....
