    Processor Usage

    daniel426

      My company has a few older computers and thier processors run consistently between 25-40% with higher spikes. Will that significantly slow them down or bog down thier system?

          • A virus would do that.
          • A bad anti-malware product would also do that.
          • Badly fragmented disks.
          • A poorly written app.

           

          If your company has "a few" computers performing the same way, their IT guy needs to look at the above possibilities first.  It is unlikely that multiple computers would all have the same processor issue.

           

          Once the above are checked, then report back with:

          • Processor model
          • OS version
          • Other pertinent information

            Here is another way you can search for your computer hardware information

            Please run the following utility and attach the results.

              Were you able to get the system configuration?
