I have noticed a slight slowdown in my computer and when i press Ctrl+Alt+Delete it shows that my CPU usage is at 100%. What is the deal with that. It is always at 100% and doesn't go down? Any tips or things to look at would be appreciated. Thanks.

using Xp or 2000 im guessing. Go into taskmanager and processes tab look at CPU column what is the name of the program using 100% (or a lot of the CPU) under image name column

I had a problem a while ago where my processor usage was 100% constantly, and nothing showed up in the Task Manager. It turned out to be soundcard drivers, which I just replaced.

I just had the EXACT same thing happen to me... then i ran Spybot, and after a ton of stuff came up, I hit clean and poof... cpu usage back to normal.

also if you have anything that uses C-Dilla you need to patch it up to v 3.57 or something like that, as it can cause a constant 100% CPU usage

Ummm, CPU usage is always at 100%. 99% of that is usually system idle process which is the CPU "doing nothing".

Look under the Process tab for details of what is running adn how much CPU time it uses.

I have narrowed the problem down to the process called control.exe When I end the process my computer performance is greatly increased. Any ideas what control.exe is and how to not have it start up? Thanks for the previous suggestions.

Problem solved. I found a file control.exe that was created about 2 weeks ago. I deleted it and now it doesn't come up in the processes tab of the task manager. Thanks for all the help.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
