In other words, it's the brain of your computer.
100% CPU is normal in certain situations. If it stays at 100% for a long time, then we've got a problem.
Let me know if you have this problem, and if you do, when does it occur, and are you able to replicate it at will?

What I mean by that is "cause it to happen again"
I don't know what you mean by replicate it.
If your CPU is staying at 100% for longer than a minute, and you aren't doing anything intense, such as a deep scan, then you might have a problem.
it was at 100% most of the time. It would go to 75% if I shut something down but would shoot back up.
When it is at 100%, look in the processes tab (after pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL) and look in the CPU column. Let me know what is using almost 100. It may be nothing, since you said your computer is quick and responsive, but I'd like to make sure of that.

It should not be staying that high. I think it may have become corrupt. Use Add/Remove Programs to remove it and then reinstall it.
To get to it: go to Start --> Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs
Reboot after reinstalling and let me know if it is still taking up that much CPU.

Replace it with Win Patrol
It does virtually the same thing. Monitors your system for changes and all that good stuff. It's never given me any problems.

Rats I already uninstalled and reinstalled, rebooted and sg is back working again with the cpu at normal range again.
There's nothing wrong with SG itself, it looks like it just has some compatability issues, like with my computer (and looks like yours too). But if it doesn't happen again, then cool.
I installed the sg this year by another one of your assistants. Win Patrol was not mentioned at that time but now I know...so for now I might just watch and see if there is a conflict again.
If it does, switch to Win Patrol
Thanks so much for your excellent assistance...
