    Hi Dgual,

    Welcome!

    It sounds as if you may have something running in Windows that maybe shouldn't be there. But shouldn't get ahead of ourselves yet.

    My first questions would be whether or not you have a software or hardware firewall installed, and whether you have an up-to-date antivirus, or other security measures in place. If you could post answers to those questions, it might give those here a better shot at lending a hand.

    ;)

    Problem solved. I simply removed un-needed start-up programs. Have the resources up to 85%
    Thanks
