high CPU usage
Posted 26 March 2010 - 10:18 AM
Lets see what you have in your startup
Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results

on starting FF it shot up to 100% but didnt freeze, took maybe 20 to 30 seconds to reload 4 pages.
I have scripts partially allowed on FF. can this present any problem?
it booted ok and is running more smoothly so far.

i had disabled everything in startup except avast.

Be careful with running around internet with no AV protection.
I seriously doubt Avast would be the problem as i have been running it for a year now with no problems with internet.
I think the problem is more the toolbars then anything but the msconfig will tell us for sure.

I might believe is the codecs and his video drivers that's causing the problem. try ask him to uninstall them. As titled, I am just guessing co'z I fixed my friends high cpu usage which has similar issue whistling.gif

If Java is a problem then please do the following.
Please download JavaRa from the link in my signature below to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
- * Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
* Accept any prompts.
* Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
* Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button.
- Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.

How is the system running now and is there any improvement from the start of this topic for you?

You are only one who has actually helped me.
Where can I make a donation please?
dont know if Ccleaner has caused any problems, but I will not use the registry cleaning part anymore. have to be honest and say I dont really know enough about it and maybe shouldn't be using it. I thought it would just help to clean up old left over stuff that might cause problems and can be deleted.

Also regular maintenance with defragging helps alot.
I appreciate the offer of a donation but I do this freely and all though some do take donations i don't believe in it since the site is a free support site.
Your thank you is enough for me.
If there are other issues or files you need to know about please feel free to ask and i will try to assist in their removal or explanation of what they are.
