i'm runnning a xp1700, with an akasa heat sink and fan win xp and office '97.
I was looking at some word documents on the internet using IE6. These files load into the ie window, i then left my pc for about an hour i found that the CPU temp had jumped 10degrees higher than even when playing games on the system, but i had nothing running for this time. When eventually task manager loaded a program on the processes tab called "winword" was using 87% of the CPU power.
I assume it is MS Word still running. Why did it do this? and can i stop it from happening again.
