You can decrease the CPU usage by disabling the third party services that are running in the back ground.

1. You can use msconfig in run command and then choose services option and then check the box , which says hide all microsoft services. then click on disalble all . this would disable the third party serivices in the back ground.

2. System Restore feature used max cpu hence if you turn if off
it should help you.

3. take off unwanted programs from add or remove program

I hope this helps you
thank you and all the best

Slow running of window vista


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.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. Here is a few good virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

When decreasing a quantity by 10% in two successive years, the overall result is to decrease the original by 19%. Explain why this occurs


This happens because the second year, you're not decreasing the original amount by 10%, but instead decreasing the reduced amount by 10%.

The first 10% decrease leaves you with only 90% of the original amount. A 10% decrease of the remaining 90% is only 9% of the original amount.

Start with a hundred of something. Take away 10%. 10% of 100 is 10, so taking 10 away from 100 leaves 90. Now out of this 90, take away 10%. 10% of 90 is 9, not 10, so taking 9 away from 90 leaves 81, which is 19% less than the original 100.

If you repeat the process again, you'll have 72.9% of the original, or a 27.1% decrease. If you take 10% away N times, you'll have 0.9^N.

I am not really sure if this caused by the fan performance, but I can confirm that my laptop dell inspiron 1420 is very hot after running about 1 hours.. and often my CPU usage reach 100% when I use Vista...


First, I appreciate the details provided in your question. Thanks!
The specification of your laptop are fine and enough to run and support Vista. It is true that greater number of processes and CPU usage causes, but normally the machine can handle it well if it gets proper ventilation.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink. I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

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.

Procesor usage upto 55% wen having opend single window


could point to both hardware and software issues..
but first check software issues. can be due to virus/spyware running.. check taskmanger and lists the processes by cpu % ... this will give you the process which is gobbling up the cpu cycles. make note of the file and track it down in hard disk. you will then have to research what it is for.

if you have a antivirus installled it may be possible that it is virus scanning the disc.

hope this helps

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.
