Well since I got my PC (April 05) whenever I go to Ctrl + Alt + Del and go to Performance the CPU Usage is ALWAYS 100%, however, the PC is not actually running slow. Is there anyway I can see what it is actually doing? Scan for viruses etc like once a week so its no that, and it has been there for a few months :tazz:

Anyone got a fix?

Thanks

Hi garriec...

In Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del), click on the "Performance" tab...what does it tell you there?

when you go into processes after closing all applications what do you see there? Are there any processes that are heavy on the cpu?
