CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting download and post the results please.
Yes, it happened before I got Win7.
Then maybe 2 weeks later I got a PSU & graphics card.
What results would you like me to post?

Just copy the whole text output og the program, start it when you start your PC up and let it run for as long as you can. It will show the temps. You should also post your system specs, that helps with troubleshooting.

I suspect those CPU temps are your problem. mine are 29C at idle on a six core Phenom II. Yours are double that. Check your CPU heatsink for dust build up and replaced the heat sink compound between the cooler and the CPU. You could even just get a new CPU cooler. 60C is way too high at idle, when you do something on your PC the chip throttles back to prevent damage.

(HELP!) Upgraded parts of my computer, now it switches off!

Read through this post. Heatsink compound did the trick

You sir deserve 1 internetz

That seemed to decrease the temperature, the PC was freezing because the CPU hit 100C !!

Thanks to both of you for being so helpful.

Isn't the Commit Charge showing physical+virtual memory usage? If so, it doesn't look like the system is using virtual memory at all.

I don't understand the memory usage of my laptop at all. If I sum up the memory usage under both Commit and Working it's less than what it is telling me that is in use.
