    Noticed that my PS was making a lot of Noise, turned out my CPU Fan was running flat out, and the
    CPU was getting a bit Hot 64c..

    Checked with the task manager and noticed that the CPU was running 50%, but I had only one dnload
    running, confirmed with the task manager only one IE running and is using 50% of the CPU, also in
    the Firewall only showed the IE that was getting data, virus program disabled at that time.

    I have never seen this before, and no Viruses were shown and some minor Spamware that I removed with

    After a reboot yesterday, no problems, and none so far today.

    So did the Winsock get its knickers in a twist.?

    Why? it is not 1988 when you had to because they broke stuff. The only
    reason to disable a realtime AV is to actually download something that
    would trigger it.

    You %50 usage is probably because you have a hyperthreaded Pentium 4 CPU,
    go and google it.
