(event viewer, administrative events)

Event Properties - Event 1000, Application Error

+ System

- EventData

   C:\Program Files (x86)\PowerStrip\pshook.dll

It repeats every 10 seconds (average).
I suspect it is the cause of both firefox and googlechrome hanging frequently [haven't checked yet]

Well, this error event (id=1000) happens with almost any program (maybe using graphics; but not smp). It shows up especially quickly with flashplayer, but even without fp, eventually slowly worsens causing hangs everywhere.
But here's a definitive trick that stops the error: after starting powerstrip, rename pshook.dll (for example pshook'.dll).
Just remember to rename it back to pshook.dll *before* starting it again in the future, otherwise hotkeys won't work.
