Unit in question is LAPTOP Compaq Evo N410c
Basic Specs are :1200mhz , 127mhz, 512mb,XP Home
The problem is that any action from a right click to opening an application will take up full resources in CPU 100% CPU during load, after initial load or task complete(idle cpu) the system sits fine with System Idle Process with no extensive use of cpu.
The problem seems during the loading of any application. Firefox,Word to name a few when loading will take full cpu time and this is really slowing the laptop down, which in my experience should not be the case for even this laptop spec. I am certain it is not a malware/adware/spyware or any type of software problem as I have monitored all active service/process and have ran in safe mode and auto updates are disabled and restore is off. It is as if CPU is looking or resources to load any program into memory, could this be a CPU problem? To reiterate the CPU is at 100% during the load of any action, then after load is fine until next action.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
