Hi after I boot my pc everything is fine for a while then all slows up when I bring up Windows Task Manager it shows that the CPU is running at 100 % although I have looked at the Processes tab, I am not sure what I am looking for...

For info, I assume this problem has come up before but I was unsure how to find out about it,, when I tried to search on previous posts It told me that min 4 letters were req... difficult when you are trying to find out about a "CPU" problem..!!

I am running XP home

Thanks

Chris

howdy maxsam and welcome.

Have you kept the taks manager up for a couple minutes to see if it goes back down? If it does not click the CPU Tab twice and it will show you what is taking up that much cycles. Let us know what it is.

Found the offending command, its,
nmindexstoresvr.exe
Its Part of the Nero 8 Suite but can also be found in Nero 7 upwards and integrates into windows explorer unless disabled... which it now is..
It was causing major problems to my machine...

I believe that Nero Scout can be uninstalled in Add/Remove Programs, if that is your choice.

If not in Add/Remove, then it should appear as a configuration option for your Nero 8 install...you should be able to disable it there.

you can also disable it via msconfig.
Start...Run...Type in Msconfig....Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck nmindexstoresvr if you cannot find it in the startup tab go the the services tab..Click apply and you will have to reboot!

Thanks to all... I have disabled it..

For those that may experience the same problem, on my PC when nero scout it kicked in my CPU would be running at 100% flat out no let up at all, so everything just slowed down.. having disabled it everything has returned to normal... its like having a new PC..!!
