It is a kind of advertising that Geekstogo uses.
But it only shows for visitors that are not logged in.

Are they showing now?

Okay, well. This isn't closed yet, so I'm going to post here. It's the same thing the title of this is. It's about the off ratio CPU %.

This doesn't add up. Do you know why?

Hmm.. it's been three days.. =\

Did you read this or have anything to respond to it? I'd really like to know... also I'd like to know how I can delete the things that aren't defragged in my computer (I've ran the scan about 50 times, I'd say). Could I post the scan log and you could tell me where these are? I cannot find them...

Thanks.

As I've explained to you before, this is not malware related in my opinion.
You are asking in the wrong place and not getting an answer.

I'd like you to start a thread here:
http://www.geekstogo...2003_NT-f5.html

State your problems with the sound and give them a link to this thread.
e.g. http://www.geekstogo...howtopic=138472
so they can see what we have done sofar.

Ah, yeah. I guess it's just that they didn't help me at all on the sound situation. Like.. they tried, but no success. So I guess mention that in a new topic? Or the topic I created about audio?

If they couldn't figure it out, I wouldn't even know where to start.

Sorry, if it worked before, then maybe backup your important files and do a re-format ?

I don't even know if it worked before, it's a brand new laptop. It got alot of software on it quickly, I don't know if a bad sound card could make this happen or what. They never really gave me a straight answer about that and kept suspecting the drivers for my components.

But what about the CPU usage being different? I think maybe that has to do with it. I would have thought that would have been spyware not showing its real CPU usage on the task manager, or not showing up there at all, I don't know how that would happen though...

It is so hard to get a good bearing on which process is using what and when exactly that I gave up years ago.

You can try and figure it out with a more advanced taskmanager:
http://www.microsoft...ssExplorer.mspx

But you really should get more knowledgeable help. :whistling:
