I have a vista 64 AMD X2 64 duo core laptop. I have a sister laptop that is similar. I have the same software on both. They are both up to date with windows stuff as wel as the other programs. One laptop is fine . The other has recently started to max out the cpu. The performance monitor shows at least one, usually two or more instances of the werfault.exe running and sucking up all the cpu. I have done the disable on the problems program. No help. I have system restored to when it worked earlier only to have this all start happening all over again. I need to get advise on what I can do next. Thanks, Beryla

Hi Broni, This is the scan of the offending unit. I was in the middle of a system restore when I got your message. This reflects the image of what it looks like when it is working. It is ok right now but I don't know for how long. I have a few windows updates waiting in the tray and may upload those and send another scan for you. Thank you so much, Beryla

I am not sure how to continue. Adding a new reply does't get me any more attachment room. Please advise. Thanks, Beryla
