My computer has just started using 100% usage. My computer HAS NOT slowed down or anything but i was just wondering if this is bad or how to lower it. I just tried to install a game but it didn't work (met min. rew.) game was telltale Texas Hold em'.

Hey frankie12,

ctrl + alt + del to bring up the task manager. Click on Processes tab. Under CPU, what process is showing a high number, meaning it is eating up the CPU resources?

Oh yeah..... GO LIONS! and take the Tigers with ya! :thumbsup:

There are 45 running at the moment. Would you say that is a high number?

It would depend, Frankie12, what applications you have open at the time. Normally with my browser, firewall, and internet connexion running, it doesn't go much over 10-20 percent at most.

probably you should state the tab under the processor and there is one which indicates CPU. Take a look at which program is running high .... see also how much your system idle process is running..
