Your PC had a chance to be infected with new virus, I don't remember the name but it's inside c:\windows\system32\sys.exe file, I just killed one yesterday in my buddy's laptop. It was blocking Task Manager , Registry Editor maybe Control Panel too. Check what goes on if you press <Ctrl><Alt><Del> - then I'll explain my solution

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!

My Toshiba satellite pro M10 very slow.


check your system performance thru task manager. check for CPU usage. usually COU usage is 1% to 10%. if your CPU usage would peak from 10% to 100% there is a huge possibility that there is program running on your computer that eats up your memory. Or it could be spyware/malware

I had to replace the motherboard, now have problems with XP


A few hints where to start looking:
  • Open the Task Manager, switch to the Performance tab and check the CPU load. If you see a constant high CPU usage, switch to the Processes tab and check which process causes the high CPU load (column "CPU").
    Also check the memory usage graph on the Performance tab. Memory usage should be low, let's say around 400MB if not many programs are running.
    In the "Physical Memory" section, check the Total value. It should (approximately) show the amount of memory actually installed.
  • Open the Device Manager (Control Panel --> System --> Hardware tab --> Device Manager).
    If error icons are displayed, try to reinstall the drivers for these devices (download the latest versions from the manufacturer's website, if possible)
  • Open the Event Viewer (Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Event Viewer) . Check all logs for errors and warnings. Try to understand and to solve the problems. Especially pay attention to those that did not occur before the time that you changed the motherboard.

My computer moves slow from outta nowhere


Completely remove avg and re-install 8.5 see if that fixes the issue. Speed almost always has something to do with how much Ram you're running. Check your cashe' to be sure it's set high enough. Many anti virus programs are very comsuming of memory.

Good Luck

Dell Dimension 8250 PC running Windows XP SP2 has CPU always at 100%


I guess it could be a virus, avast is not the best antivirus in my opinion, try to get a norton antivirus or NOD32 update it and run the scan, it ocuurs when a replicating virus copies files to all your HDD and is always busy...making system busy...and one more thing there could easily be a copy of the virus in your pen drive as well...
