people, there you go,
here is simple one.
 
though i must say that i do not know the answer.
 
when you look at task manager in "graph mode" where you see a graph instead of the numbers, how do you see what the program is that has caused the spike?
 
sincerly,
i do not know

I don't honestly know either... is it possible anyone?

 

Process Explorer by Sysinternals is pretty good for getting more detailed info about whats going on though.

At the exact moment the spike is happening go back to the processes window, which you will have sorted by cpu usage, and see which program is at the top of the list.

TsVk!, good to make your acquaitance,
 
someone said that while you were STILL in "graph mode" that all you have to do is point your cursor at the top of the spike in the graph and it will tell you what program that this is (causing the spike).
 
but i tried it and haven't been able to get it to work :orange:
 
by the way, is that program that you listed able to see past charts from days past or is it just "live", like task manager?
 
hi there bludshot, nice to meet you.
 
so have you heard anything about this, while STILL in "graph mode"?

Nope. What I suggest is the best thing I know of (even though it sucks I know).

Process Explorer includes a small graph at the top....hovering your mouse over each window (CPU. System Commit, Physical Memory, etc) provides more information. You can also click on a window to enlarge the graph.

You too buddy...

It provides more historical data than taskmanager... Try it out. It is tiny, safe and free.

hi quietman7, its good to hear from you again :grinner:
 
thanks for the securia program. i just found out that updates aren't the ONLY vulnerabilities that people can get through with though. i heard that specific programs or hardware are looked for as well. and i am hesitant about the whole update process, as this is how someone may have gotten through before, as one of my updates was "unsigned" when i updated it.
 
Process Explorer: didn't know that.
 
thanks for trying bludshot, i don't know if it is actually possible or not either :apple:
it was just what someone said. either there is another way to do it or it is not possible at all.
 
hi there TsVk!, thanks :cherry:
 
does the Process Explorer history extend for several days?

I doubt it... not unless you run the program for several days, maybe.
