This laptop runs very well most of the time. But when I try to run a Webcam session over Live Messenger the CPU hits 100%, even with Norton Security disabled. I have tried falling back to Messenger 7.5 but still have the same problem. Does anybody have any suggestions what may be causing the problem?

Hmmm.I don't know if its the same but if I run my Anti-Virus or anything like that My CPU uses anything from about 40% up to 100% usage.I am sure that there are a few up-grades that I could do to my computer to make it run better,Or maybe a few programs that I could delete that would make it run better,But as my computer is getting past its sell bye date I don,t think it is worth updating it while computers are fairly cheap to buy at the moment.I am sure someone will be able to tell you what up-grades that you may need for your computer to make it run better,
What programs are hogging your CPU when reaching 100% There have been problems with svchost.exe If so remove Microsoft automatic up-dates reboot your computer and try manually updating computer.See if that helps.
