Services using 99% cpu ?



Recently I've noticed that my svchost.exe both the Locla Service and SYSTEM provoked one's have been using 55-60% and 20-25% cpu respectively at the same time.

That's 75% of my cpu power..Why is this? they are also using more ram, and explorer.exe is using like 44mb of ram.

I mean I have a t-bird 900mhz with 128mb of ram (running windows XP)

Anyone got any ideas?
You really need...

at least 256MB of ram for XP... other than that, I am not sure on the CPU usage...

I also have the same problem also running tbird 900 with 256mb RAM.

The usage of cpu affects the sound performance ...
Do you guys happen to be running MotherBoard Monitor? I'm curious because someone else reported pegged CPU load when that was running.
No ..

I suspect the graphic card ... when there is movement onscreen or when an active program is performing some operation (not the ones in the background) the cpu goes wild ...
What exactly should we look for on this page? There is a lot of things listed ...
I went trough the list ...
anything in particular i should look for .. sorry for my stupidity :eek: ;) :D
nah, its got nothing to do with RAM. theres no reason for explorer.exe to take 44MB of ram on a 128BLT system and 18megs on my system.
I disabled some services that the guy in that first link suggested, no more high cpu usage, and less ram usage! WOOHOO

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
