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

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,

Digital key chain and have uploaded the picturesoftware still up


Right click your Task Bar and left click Task Manager.Click Applications and what ever is running will be displayed.At the bottom, center, is CPU usage.Check it for what percent of the CPU is working.If it's 100% then you need to find which program is robbing all the resources.Low RAM installed is the usual reason,a computer simply can't run on the small amount supplied as purchased.Most come with only 512 mb,a simple scan with your virus scanner will virtually bring you down to a crawl.
Back to your problem,you can click on the program once and hit the end program button,this will terminate the the download and give you back your computer.You can always go to "process" in the task manager and double click CPU,this will tell you exactly what is running and how much of the memory it's using.Again you can click that process once and then end the process.But Ram Memory is the main cause for slow or Locked Up computers.Click "my computer",then right click your Drive,then click "properties".At the bottom of the page is RAM,that's what you have to work with.Most computers don't come with even 1GB of RAM,you need at least that much to be able to everyday tasks.
Re Post if you need more help,take care!

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...

Hard drive


When you say it's slow what I often found is that
1.not enough memory on your laptop
** so your CPU have to use your harddisk as memory,instead of working directly your CPU have another work to manage thus cos your system to slow down.
** you can check memory usage by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and check
Physical memory and see your available memory.

2.use more than one anti-virus program.Its just like before your work has been check by one program and now somebody is calling your same work to be recheck.Thus cos your system to become really slow.

3.Something is running all the time.A virus or something is running all the time.Shut it down by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and see CPU
usage that its 100%!!!! If so go up to process tab and right click
on the process you think is creating problem and End Process Tree.

3.The combination of not enough muemory and also not enough
harddrive space.When I say not enough harddriver I mean really low about 100-300 Megs.

so in your case not the problem with Harddrive..cos you have 1.5G

takecare.
