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.

can you list the processes that are running from task manager?

Do I get that with Alt Ctrl Del? If so only audio deck - some sound thing provided by MSI the mobo manufacturers.

yes ctrl, alt del, but you need to click on the processes tab which will show the processes running at present. They will be a few as it will also show the windows running components

There are a load, but only one mpservic.exe has anything in the CPU column - and that fluctuates right up tp 99. Is that CPU use in %? Now where do I go?

if you have a cannon printer the above recommends uninstalling your printer software and re-installing

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.

I think I've resolved prematurely. Now 'system idle process' is reading 99.

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
