ok so your cpu is using 100% is it causing other problems other then annoying you it's at 100%? and when you open task manager what program does it say is using all the cpu explorer or other stuff?

ok, but if you start doing other work is it slowed down by this? or does it appear to be working normally? I've had instances now and then where explorer is using 100% of the cpu but as soon as I start doing other stuff it goes back to normal

The System file checker will repair any corrupted files
you might want to try this before you reinstall

sfc /scannow

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???
