Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

Continuous reloading of programs, cpu use up to 100%

Help! My computer starts up fine, then when I move a cursor it begins to load whatever program I glide over first without clicking anything. I have managed to try add/remove, registry cleaner, tweak, anything! It first started when I tried to run a panda antivirus scan which I have done many times successfully in the past. It shows about 50 or more viruses detected, then froze up and I had to turn off manually.

Hi, does the mouse move around the screen rapdily, while you are just using it normally? if so, it could be a driver fault for the mouse or something similar. this has happened to me before, and the way i solved it was updating the driver for the mouse. try doing that and see if it works.

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.

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.

Very difficult to move the cursor around. It seems to be stuck and does not allow me to easily navigate. When I am inside my email browser it moves just fine.

Turn your computer off. Unplug the mouse or the wireless transmitter if it is wireless. Start the computer and wait for all programs to load. When they are all loaded plug the mouse in and wait for the drivers to be loaded. It should work fine now.

I have an acer netbook and occasionally i get a weird symbol when i move my cursor. it's almost like a bullseye. it pauses my cursor until it goes away and then in can continue. what is this?

This is a custom cursor that has been setup by either:

A program on your computer
A custom cursor program like free cursors or something.

Check you computer for programs like "smiley cursors" or check the windows control panel and open Mouse settings to see if you have any custom pointers.

It is possible that.. instead of an hourglass.. somebody, or a program has set a custom pointer for your mouse.

The pointer changes to an hourglass in any windows setup by default when it wants you to wait for something that is happening in the background to finish processing.

Check for spyware and viruses as well.. customer cursor websites are great at getting people to install them and you get infected sometimes.
