Check your anti virus, I recommend installing Malwarebytes, then Superantispyware and then Avast. Be carefull installing these as they install by default Googles chrome, I remove the check mark! Forget Norton and McAfee. These 3 are free, make sure you never UPGRADE, just update. If you Upgrade you will have to $$ and you don't need the extras when running all these 3. Make sure in Avast settings you may have to shut down and keep off Web Sheild as on some older PC's it slows it down alot. Click Internet Options and manage what add ons are running. You may be surprised at how many have been installed by the computers oem or by you by mistake when you download and install things.

    I remove all antiviruses and use spynomore (free to try) to check my system overnight I just delete what it finds manually

  • itzmepete Nov 27, 2013

    I would recommend the other two. There is a difference between Spyware, malware and anti virus. I once went to a web page and I Alt Cntrl Deleted Explorer within seconds to get off. McAfee didn't help and it was a paid version! It installed a malware and every time I did a search on Yahoo or Google it rerouted my search. Took Malwarebytes to remove it. I wouldn't run a pc without all 3 above.

Tip

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.

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!

Slow internet, gaming, everything.


Try Chrome browser, but Windows based systems tend to slow down with time. Specially with older and slower systems like mine. Try disabling startup processes. In Windows Start > Run (search in Win 7) type msconfig. Go to Startup and disable anything that you don't require to start. They will kick off only when you run the programs instead of utilizing resources like memory and CPU for the get go.

My Intel D945PVS motherboard has become very slow. I tried to add memory (4g) but no help. I think it could be the motherboard or cpu. I see the cpu running at 100% a lot of time. Can you help.


I will suggest to see running processes. It will show you what processes are running and which uses more memory (also cpu usage). It might be some virus or unwanted program.

Start by identifying the processes which are using the cpu and stop them or disable the processes which are causing the usage.

CPU usage 100%


Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot malaware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.
That is very unusual and sure not your case.

Advance Bios Set up (CPU frequency (MHz) setting)


Your computer is telling you there is a problem with either the memory or the interface between the motherboard and the memory. There is a utility you can use called memtest. I would run that and see if you get errors. Often it is easier to simply try a different piece of memory in the slot, because even if you detect errors it could be due to the interface and not the memory itself.

But the first thing you should try is power off the computer, remove the cover, blow all the dust from inside the case, remove the memory and blow all dust from the memory sticks and slots, then put it back together and try again. This is free and solves the problem about 20% of the time.

Good luck.
