My lovingly assembled P4 512mb ram PC has only improved & run cooler since installing XP a month or so ago. CPU temp droping 10 degrees to a fairley constant 39 degrees (according to some software). I dont believe I've installed or am running anything new, but........ Now it seemed to have slowed right down & I noticed the CPU was 59 degrees! Any suggestions whats happening, Thanks again.
I'm having some work done & moved my Pc & Cannon printer/fax, why this would spark anything who knows. I'll try uninstalling, but yet again I suspect you've identified the problem. I'll try & re-post if it's not solved. Is the figure under CPU % use? Thanks chaps.
System idle process running at 99% isn't a problem....go to the next tab...performance...you'll see that CPU usage will only be about 2% .I believe it's showing exactly what it says....how much of the CPU's resources are idle.....not how much is being used
