Not sure if this is the right forum to post so sorry if it isn't. First off .... I have Windows Xp Home Asus p4s333 2 gig p4 256 kingmax 2700 nvidia g4 4200 ect... Its not A GTA3 problem but ...I first noticed the problem while running GTA3. (yes i have all patches and updated drivers)Every couple of seconds I would get a second or two of slowdown. So I decided to check the task manager to see what (if anything) was running in the backround.I noticed that the cpu usage was spiking every few seconds up to about 35% usage. I can see that "System" in the processes tab is what is running. If I "end process" I get 0% usage; but if I do that other things on my system stops working. Obviously "System" is controlling a couple of things on my system but WHAT ? Is there anyway I can find out in more detail what each process controls? I've been trying to fix this for weeks but no good . Things that I tried are... switching from xp pro to xp home running all microsoft updates been to blackviper.com and shut down everything I could running "adaware" to see if anything is running if anyone else has seen this problem PLEASE HELP ! TIA !!!
