Hello Helpers...

I have a previous topic that I was getting assistance on in regards to my Dell Dimension 2400 Series computer (with 1.5 gigs of memory) ... my computer runs at 100% CPU usage ... so I started with eliminating the possiblity of spyware, etc...
went through as instructed and my computer has zero infections (spyware, etc.)


i don't know if this is the right way of attaching the thread I am talking about but if you look at it you'll see the results of the scans I perfomed and the recommendation by boopme (very helpful by the way) that I take this to the XP forum for
sfc /scannow help...

can anyone help me please? thanks in advance...

if you need more information please let me know...

Go to taskmanager, select the "Processes" tab. I cannot get any simpler than that. Look at your "CPU" column and go from there. Post back with whatever process(es) is/are the troublemaker and we will see what can be done.
