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

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
