I'm having problems with my processor on my computer.
when im just on internet checking my email and some stuff, my CPU usage is mostly 100%, this is very annoying because my screen freezes, and I have to wait 5-20 seconds before I can do anything..
Im only having 24 processes on, wich isn't quite much..
I have optimized it for optimal use, so most unused programs and services are off to spare CPU usage.
I have installed the good and most recent drivers, If recently checked it on the website with the automatic scanner for driver updates.
I do have a virusscanner(microsoft security essentials) and there are no viruses or malware on my PC wich could affect the system, and I know almost every proces on my computer.
does anyone know how it is possible that im using 100% CPU just on internet, without loading heavy sites, just by opening a browser...
some of my specs:
Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 2.80A GHz, 1M Cache, 533 MHz FSB
1 GB RAM
150 GB Hard Disk(35GB used)
Windows XP Service pack 3
Nvidia Geforce FX 5200
You can check the system´s temperature for cpu overheating, because the processor may be throttling to protect itself. Other possibility is that your PC still have some viruses/malwares that the MSE didn't catch. Try a different antivirus program. I hope this can help.
