That's why I don't use it anymore. Install Chrome. You should see a difference.

What can I do about cpu reading 100%

Check what programs are taking up the most CPU resources, i.e. invoke the Windows Task Manager (use Ctrl + Shift + Escape or Ctrl + Alt + Delete, or simply right click on the Task Bar and select the option).

Look on the Processes page tab and click on the CPU column heading to order the usage by the maximum to minimum, then watch to see what is taking the most resources.

Computer CPU/Processor maxed 100%

Is your computer experiencing a CPU that is running at 100% Is your computer experiencing slow performance?

You can view your CPU utilization and other performance stats using Windows Task Manager. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and bring up Task Manager. Go to the performance tab.


The top of this screen should show your CPU stats.

In Linux you can use the TOP command,
Type the top command:
$ top

A CPU that is running at 100% utilization is not necessarily a problem. When the computer is booting up, or coming out of sleep mode, it may max out the CPU which is normal. The CPU will be utilized fully in order to bring the computer up as fast as possible. Some computers will even utilize the CPU while it is idle, to complete background task such as disk cleanup and file reallocation.

A problem will occur if the CPU stays maxed out. If it stays at 100% for more than a couple of minutes, you may be experiencing degraded computer performance.

Steps to reduce performance degradation.

-In a limited number of cases, software bugs can cause CPU utilization to spike. You will know this is the case if you are using a computer program(that is not hardware intensive like photo/video editors) and notice degraded computer performance. Check your CPU stats while running the program. If this is the case, check online for solutions and possible upgrades which resolve bugs in the software.

-You can reduce Windows start up programs, which will speed up the boot/wakeup process. You can do this from the MSCONFIG window. Go to Start > and in the run box type "msconfig". Go to the "startup" tab and you can uncheck which programs you do not want to start with Windows.

-A majority of the time a computer will get to a point were the hardware will need to be upgraded in order to handle the work you are doing. Common computer upgrades are memory, cpu, motherboard and hard drive.

Problem in playing Farmville or Cafeworld in FaceBook

CAUSE: This particular issue occures only on multiple processors systems, as quad processors and duo processors systems, when all processors try to play.

1. Open Task Manager
2. Go to the process of that browser under PROCESS tab, i.e. iexplore.exe for Internet Explorer
3. Make a right click on it and select SET AFFINITY..
4. You will see all the number of CPU on your system checked, like CPU0, CPU1, CPU3
5. You need check just one CPU.
6. Exit task manager and the game will run smoothy.

How to configure a MP080 motherboard using socket type 7 for a Intel 100 MHz 296-pin SPGA processor(hopeing for a video clip; some sort of visual aid on how to

Look at the CPU-socket on the motherboard.
There will be "holes" in only _some_ of the corners of the grid of holes.

It is a 'ZIF' ("zero insert force") socket, meaning that if you have to "push" the CPU to get it into the socket, you are doing SOMETHING WRONG.

Look for a lever on one side of the socket.
Gently pull the lever SLIGHTLY "away" from the socket, to "unlock" it, and then rotate the lever 90 degrees.

Look at your CPU -- there will be matching pins (and omitted pins) at each corner of the grid of pins.

Match the pins with the holes, and put the CPU into the socket. Use that "lever" to lower the CPU into the socket.

Most motherboards will "auto-detect" that you have a 100 Mhz FSB ("front side bus") on your CPU, and the CPU itself will clock itself, e.g., a CPU rated at 2000 Mhz will "multiply" the FSB bus by 20 (2000 == 100 * 20) to drive the CPU at its rated speed.

Msn running slow

Explore.exe is your windows environment, it is the bar at the bottom and your desktop, etc. This may be working at a high level of CPU cycles because you are trying to do something within windows (It may be because you just opened the task manager screen).

If iexplore is taking up a lot of processes, that is your internet browser. It may be because you are trying to run a large Java applet, or it is currently downloading a large webpage.

Overall, to optimize your PC, I would recommend running disk defragmentor. To do this, go to My Computer, right click your hard drive (Most likely named Local Disk (C:) ), and go to properties. When on the properties page, click the Tools tab at the top and click the Defragment Now... button in the middle of the screen. While in the program, press the Defragment button. I would suggest running this 3 times in a row to make sure that your data is completely defragmented and pushed to the beginning of your drive. Most people will tell you after doing this that their PC runs like new.

You should try to test your memory (before windows boots.See download) to make sure the sticks are good. Download this. Next try using a program called Process Explorer to locate hanging modules of your computer. This will help you narrow it down.
