May seem simple but I can't fathom it out.. On windows 7 I have the CPU usage plug in, added when I became convinced that more was happening than I thought. Although nothing is set in shedule processes, the 4 cores of the CPU are often going mad, with 70-80% of the 3 GB memory being used... Is there a program which tells me what the bl..... machine is doing. Perhaps a permanant window on the bottom of the screen? It is so frustrating as it slows down internet explorer and generally seems to be more interested in its own thing than my requests, to the point where I even considered going out to find a snail, watching that would be faster. Happy days. :thumbup2: :thumbsup:

I'd say that you open up Task Manager and one-by-one see which processes are taking up more CPU usage and kill their processes since really there might be some apps or processes running in the background which you don't know about.

Hope that helps. :)
