I have just installed on my W8.1 Tablet All CPU Usage Monitor, and started reading about CPU, Memory / RAM and Cores, etc. about which I know very little. I would welcome comment and advice on a few early points.
1. What is 'good' and what is 'bad' CPU usage? I realise the answer will involve a lot of 'it all depends' but I hope there are some general guidelines to follow on what to expect (a) when few apps / programs are running and ( when there is major usage. Are there any grounds for being concerned if usage is shown as 100% from time to time?
2 . Why is there a consistent difference between what CPU Usage Monitor shows (backed up by readouts elsewhere in Windows) and what Task Manager shows. While the Monitor reports usage usually fluctuating around 40% ---- at the same time Task Manager consistently shows it around 60%
3. What is the % usage of my four Cores telling me? (ranging from 30% to 50% plus)
4. Why is it that when I am running my default browser, Chrome, Task Manager shows about 15 entries for Chrome plus an additional one for Chrome Portable (which is what I have installed)
