CPU Usage Meter 100%...... Indexing..... HELP!

I cant get my CPU Usage to chill out. It keep flatlining at 100% and wont drop. I have tried scanning the system for mal-ware, sky-ware and regiistry errors and cant figure it out. The only thing that seems to work is if i stop the indexing function. I cant believe that it is just indexing that is messing my system up. Any ideas?

Thanks

MY CPU is using 90 to 100% most of the time


This post is a little confusing. The CPU running at 90 - 100% directly conflicts with Idle being 38 or 49 %. CPU usage + System idle process should equal 100%. Here is an explanation.
What is the System Idle Process and why is it using most of the CPU Ask Leo
The host process can runs many things at once and may or may not be a problem depending on what is running.
host process for windows service consuming data continuously
Since the CPU usage and the System idle seem to be in conflict, I suspect some hidden process may be running. Do a full scan with your antivirus and then run these.

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.

Usage cpu 100%


The high CPU useage could also be the virus scanning program running and if your hard disk has a lot of files, data etc. it would take a lone time to complete.
Removing unwanted files and programs will make the virus scanning complete its task quicker.

You should also carry out hard disk maintenance at least onec a month Ie Disk Cleanup and Defrag to remove temporary unwanted files and Defrag will make your files contiguous so the hard disk does not need to work as hard and efficient.

Procesor usage upto 55% wen having opend single window


could point to both hardware and software issues..
but first check software issues. can be due to virus/spyware running.. check taskmanger and lists the processes by cpu % ... this will give you the process which is gobbling up the cpu cycles. make note of the file and track it down in hard disk. you will then have to research what it is for.

if you have a antivirus installled it may be possible that it is virus scanning the disc.

hope this helps

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.

Boot your PC into "Safe Mode" (tapping the F8 key on boot to get to the option) and run a full/complete Virus scan with Anti Virus with up to date virus definitions and see what that yields.

Dell Dimension 8250 PC running Windows XP SP2 has CPU always at 100%


I guess it could be a virus, avast is not the best antivirus in my opinion, try to get a norton antivirus or NOD32 update it and run the scan, it ocuurs when a replicating virus copies files to all your HDD and is always busy...making system busy...and one more thing there could easily be a copy of the virus in your pen drive as well...
