Using Win,XP,this problem just recently started within a couple of months. I didn't change anything. I can be on other sites, no problems, as soon as I go on Facebook,within 3 minutes my fans come on and my task mngr. says my usage goes to 75 to 100%. I've also gotten a lot of "Unresponsive script" warnings as of late...never had that before either.
