Well like you said (the bad ways), how can I increase my computing ability. If its security issues, I'm not sure thats the problem. I have 2 virus scanners working together. Same with spyware. I also have 2 programs that help boost the computers performance. I usually run them once a week. But some are daily. What can I do to boost it then. Iis it good or bad to have the system idle process over 90?
that depends on what your definition of good or bad is
if the process is over 90 it means your processor is doing only about 10 percent of what it's capable
this is good if you all of a sudden want to do something else there are plenty of resources available
it's bad in the sense that most of your computing ability is being wasted
all the process does is indicate how much of your processor is not being used...90 means your processor is not using 90 percent of it's capability
I have AVG and Multi-virus cleaner. I can take off the multi one though. thats not a problem. But it seems to me for sure I have a virus, but neither one picks anything up. Spybot always works fine.Just a suggestion - never run two AV's at the same time! Oh BTW - which two, as some AV's are real resource hogs - which would slow you down. System Idle Process is not your problem! That said - I'll go back into hibernation and let perris handle your answer! :speechless:
that's interesting, I have no explanation for that what so ever
