What's your problem?It's stuck on logging off


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

Why is my cpu constantly running at 100% and my fan constantly running no matter what I do?


it is kind of known issues with vista OS.

Press ALT+Ctrl+Esc or go to task manager -> process-> you will get which process is taking much CPU usages.

Then right click on the particular process and delete it.

This happens most of the time because of the SVHOST.exe

To get rid from it.

Check one of the below solution provided on the forum. This should resolve your issue.

If not then please get back with the screenshot of the task manager process window. So we can determine which process is consuming the max usages of CPU.

As a systems engineer I daresay you did not use any hardware updates from the Microsoft Update page? If so roll back the drivers you downloaded

Alternatively if you identify processes that do not belong use the following program to terminate them http://majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
It is a straight-forward program called hijackthis it makes a log of the currently running processes and allows you to terminate ANY of them hence care is advised

I sincerely hope this helped

Unknown file


In software Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) within the Microsoft Windows operating system.
At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services part of the registry to construct a list of services that it must load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services. Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services permits better control and easier debugging, but it also causes some difficulty for end users wishing to see the memory usage or vendor legitimacy of individual services and processes. End users in Windows XP Professional (and derivatives, such as Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Media Center Edition) can run the following command at the system prompt to get a breakdown:
tasklist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" (NB: This command does not work in Windows XP Home.)
Due to being widespread among running processes, svchost.exe has long been a common disguise used by malware to hide its presence from the user. (One of the common trojan horses deceptively uses scvhost.exe). Users may then run tasklist with no arguments and match the reported PIDs with the previously shown Svchost instances. If memory usage appears abnormal, the user can look up the service names shown by their command on the internet to see if it is a known service or malware.
The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. The main registry key involved at bootup is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost (values in this key will show the user at least a partial list of the actual processes behind instances of svchost).
The 30 April, 2007 release of WSUS 3.0 led to reports of svchost.exe issues, including 100% CPU usage, memory hogging, and excessive laptop fan/power usage.[1]

CPU saturatuon.


You'll need to look at the Processes panel in the Task Manager to see which processes are consuming your CPU cycles. If you click on the CPU column heading, the process list will re-sort based on CPU usage. If the list appears to be arranged low-to-high ('00' at the top), click on the heading again and the list will reverse so that it appears high-to-low ('00' at the bottom). Once you identify the contributing processes, you can troubleshoot them one-at-a-time.

CPU usage very high, mouse very slow man


hi,
you haven't mentioned whether your mouse started moving after you deleted the applications..
Anyway to lower your CPU usage, you can do the following...
1. Run 'msconfig' without the inverted comas in the run dialog box. ( start--> run )
2. Select the startup tab... you can disable all application at startup to load the system faster. or you can select the application that you thing is unnecessary. this needs a restart.
3. Next try to press Ctrl, Alt , Del at the ssame time to launch the task manager. First you will be seeing the application that is running. Go to the next tab that is the Processes tab. under this you will see all the processes that is running and utilsing how much resources . Below on the status bar of that window you will see the cpu usage... Now identify the processes that has the highest memory usage... right click and select end process tree. the process will be stopped. Remember not to end the explorer.exe process. Most resources is utilised by Anti-virus softwares like norton, also by web-browsing and graphics opertaions....

hope to get rated as fixya!!

bzoy..
