Ok... if using winxp press ctrl, alt and delete keys together to bring up task manager select processes tab and find out in the cpu column what program is using high number (percentage) in cpu column. That is the program that is causing it, if you don't know what the program is by the name of file let me know and will be happy to further assist you.

also.....if you are using vista press ctrl, alt and delete together and select task manager....then follow the same instructions as above.

cheers.

    This is a valid program but it is not required to run on startup.

    This program is not required to start automatically as you can run it when you need to. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources.





    To disable this tool below is really easy to use and can stop this program from running at startup.

There's a good chance you have a trijan, assuming you have an antivirs programme, run it in safe mode (F8 on startup and enter using safe mode), use the administrator account to log into windows, and then go to my computer icon, right click>properties>system restore tab, then turn off system restore.(viruses and trojans have a back up in system restore)

Run anti virus programme, restart pc then turn system restore back on

If you don't have an anti virus/spyware you can get a free download with free updates here, (choose the avg free download)

100% cpu usage


In Task Manager, go to the Processes tab and sort by the CPU column. See what is hogging up all your CPU. It may be a virus, if so, I recommend downloading Malware Bytes and doing a full scan. Warning, it could take several hours to scan depending on the size of your machine. Good luck!

CPU usage 100%


This is due to memory and program usage.
Depending on your computers specs. try these steps
1. Disk clean and defrag
2. Virus, spyware, malware, Trojan, rocket scan and removal
3. Registry cleaner and optimizer
4. Check disc space on the C: drive
5. Turn off unnessasery programs auto starting

If this does not work it maybe that you need to upgrade your computer or add some extra RAM.

I am not really sure if this caused by the fan performance, but I can confirm that my laptop dell inspiron 1420 is very hot after running about 1 hours.. and often my CPU usage reach 100% when I use Vista...


First, I appreciate the details provided in your question. Thanks!
The specification of your laptop are fine and enough to run and support Vista. It is true that greater number of processes and CPU usage causes, but normally the machine can handle it well if it gets proper ventilation.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink. I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

100% CPU usage


Hi,

Try to monitor the CPU usage before opening CROME. If it is normal before opening it then there is some process under CROME which takes you CPU usage report to GOOGLE on this. and remove it through Add/Remove programmes under control panel.

Try to use Firefox instead of CROME.

If it happens again then there is some thing wrong with OS( most probabaly Spyware or trozen).

CPU Usage jumps to 100% and down to 2% when I change websites


I'd say it has NOTHING to do with how or when you access Yahoo. In fact, anytime you see an extreme jump in CPU usage like yours....you have to consider that you may very well have a TROJAN VIRUS that's hogging up all your memory (among other things viruses do). If you don't have a good anti-virus program, then get one fast. Update all virus definitions, then.......RUN a FULL scan on your pc or laptop! Watch what you find.
