I have a utility that lets me monitor CPU usage, and was very suprised at the results it showed...
My basic pc specs:
Intel p3 733 MhZ
ATI radeon 9200 Vid card
Aand thats all I can remember off the top of my head.
Now, Idling, this computer will use up 82% (!) of its CPU. Idling. With nothing running. I find this very strange, a as my mother's old machine she usues to record and edit audio clips idles at about 5%.
Now this machine hasn't has a fresh install of windows in several years, so I'm wondering if that might be a problem... Anyway I'm looking forward to fixing this problem with your help
