100% cpu usage problems????

  24ggaarryy 12:08 13 May 2004

I am running XP pro on a ACER 270 laptop.
Has been great, but
I now am showing 100% CPU usage when I clt, alt del although nothing other than the start screen is open.
I have run Pest control and it shows no problem.
I have Mcafee viruscsn V4.5.1 SP1 installed and running and have not been to any dodgy sites.
Needless to say the machine is now running v slowly. Specifically outlook which takes an age to load.
I cannot identify any rouge items in proccesses.

Any assistance will be gratefully recieved.

when you press ctrl,alt & delete click on the process tab. That will tell you all the programs that are causing the processor to process

You need to click on the little box that says "show processes from all users"
