Something to keep the CPU busy

  Graham ® 19:54 02 Aug 2006

I have a PC that is running slow coming to me on Friday. It occurs to me that if I set a program running that will exercise the processor, I can monitor the usage in Task Manager, and also see what else is running.

Something like a benchmark program, though 3DMark is beyond me at the moment.

You can get older 3DMark progs.

If its running slow the CPU is probably already busy
CRTL-ALT-DELETE select processes this will show you what may be causing the problem..

If not legit running process scan for spy/malware delete all temp internet files, probably just needs good housekeeping

That certainly keeps my CPU busy - 100%!
