1. Definitely processor related as after 10 minutes of bogging down
the machine, BANG ! it automatically opened the .exe
2. Thereon after, all following .exe's are also automatically opened

Well Done ! It's a beauty !

InternetExplorer Zones protection by flooding it with large number
file://requests in example to infected fileserver. The result of

Not been able to replicate since though.
