Here is a solution that I read in "Tim's Journal" a while back.
Repost and let me know if it works for you.

Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services and stop the Print Spooler. Turn off the printer. Now go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS and delete the files there. I found '00020.SHD' and '00020.SPL'. Now turn your printer back on and restart the service. Check task manager, spoolsv.exe should be at 00%.

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.

g33k4u_0.gif

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.

Eax300se problems with XP


First, open your Task manager and open the "performance tab". There are a lot of built in programs in XP that can peg the CPU to full and this will slow/crash your computer. If any program is eating 100% of your CPU power for a long time, use Google to see how to fix the problem.

Test your RAM: Open the Start Menu and type in mdsched.exe, then press enter. - Then follow the procedure you think is best for your machine.

If your machine is capable via the BIOS, check to see at what temperature the CPU is running. Some processors run hot all the time, but some processors can't take the heat and will crash.

Also, if your computer is not under warranty physically check to see that the CPU fan is moving freely... and the GPU fan as well if your computer has one. Clean any dust and what not off of the blades if it is dirty, or replace if necessary.

If none of that seems to be the issue, remember that XP is considered "End of Life" and a lot of programs will not run on XP any more. Also remember that while some programs might still work, they may still be buggy on XP.

Why does my windows 7 max out all four of my quad-cores cpu when coming out of sleep mode? I've already replaced a power supply. Any suggestions.


Hello there,
There are probably multiple programs that run on start up that is causing your system to work hard. To resolve this issue, click on the start button and search for "msconfig." Open up Msconfig.exe and head over to the Startup tab. Uncheck anything that you do not immediately need and restart the computer. This should resolve the issue. I hope this helps! Thumbs up are much appreciated.

My cpu usage is at 100 % when i run more two programs at a time, in turn making my computer slow even after installing a new operating system


Be careful how you interpret this information. In general, any program that has "work" to do will use the CPU when it is available. Showing 100% CPU usage over en extended period of time MAY indicate a problem or it may just reflect the case where there are background programs beiung run that have no effect on the system. The "scheduling" iof the CPU is usually done in chunks called quanta. Since CPU time is usually scheduled on what is called a pre-emptive mode, lower priority jobs (like virus scanning of the disc) will be pre-empted by an interactive user command (word processing for example).

Without examining your system and understanding what programs are running, it is hard to provide guidance on how to "fix": the system. Use the task manager to see what percentage of time is being used and for what. The utilization is shown as a percentage of the whole. Report the info here and we should be able to at least explain what is happening.

Please continue this in the other duplicate thread.

Thanks,

Svchost error memmory


Svchost.exe acts as a host for a group of services on your computer. As you are aware there a many services and programs the run silently in the back ground. Svchost.exe pools many of these services in one group and runs all at the same time. This is a great for efficiency. However, it can cause your CPU to spike to 100%.

As mentioned before svchost.exe is essential. So the trick is not to block svchost.exe, its to limit your computers need to use it. You can limit your computer need for svchost.exe. By cutting down on the services that are loaded when you PC starts. This can be done quite easily.

1. Open your Start menu.
2. Click Run
3. In the command screen type: msconfig
4. In the "system configuration utility", Click "services" tab
5. Uncheck all services that are unnecessary.
6. Click "OK"
Uncheck the suspecious services but make sure you do not stop necessary services. Restart the PC to take them affect
