Allan :wink:

 

First of all, nobody takes responsibility for anyone's post except for the person who posts it.

Second, we respond to every legitimate question, regardless of how many posts the person has.

Third, let's not toss around the word "ignorant", shall we?

Fourth, if this is the most anal thread you've ever read, you need to read more threads.

And last, if you have nothing helpful to contribute to a thread, it may be best if you don't post.

 

Just my ignorant thoughts :)

I can not believe this thread is real, This has got to be the most anal thread I have ever witnessed in my entire life. How can BC and your Advisor Mr. Allen take responsibility for a post made by someone with a post count of 8?  Then act like the people here are so ignorant that they need to be told by Mr. Allen that he and BC are personally is not responsible even though that is the first post that Mr. Allen has made in this thread???

This is insanity

 

Quite honestly...I fail to see just what your post...contributes to this topic.  Your personal opinions...re a given topic, a given poster, the size of the universe, etc...you are entitled to such.  Interjecting such into a topic posted by a member...does nothing to respond to the topics/issues raised by the OP and the ensuing valid comments/responses from members who are trying to provide useful, helpful information.

In the second post, mikey11 suggested a hard drive test, I believe this would be a good idea. A drive with bad blocks can cause 100% cpu usage and 100% disk usage at random for no reason. These can also cause programs to load extremely slow and cause the computer overall to be much slower than normal. A speccy report should grab your storage devices attributes and if anything sticks out, I can recommend another test. For now, see if you can follow the instructions below posted by hamluis. 


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

Momentary fluctuations in CPU and RAM usage...are quite normal and mean nothing in particular, other than the system resources are (monetarily) in use.

 

Unless Task Manager reflects sustained use of resources on a given program/process...it's nothing to be concerned about.

 

It is common for Chrome (or any other browser)...and system security programs...to reflect a peak RAM usage of something up to 300MB or so.  Depending on the webpage scripts, ads, etc...browser process usage may fluctuate to maybe 500MB peak RAM.  Peak RAM usage in excess of 500MB...may indicate a problem.

 

I would like a static photo of Task Manager, not a video.  No one has any need to watch momentary changes in Task Manager.

Your AV is quite busy from the video.I have had the best luck with Windows Defender for resource use lately. Though all of them will consume cpu and disk while running scans. With windows defender you can set what cpu% you want it to use, at least the last time I checked you could. With my N3700 chips I frequently see 80% to 90% cpu usage from google chrome, when streaming video I was always at 100% in windows 10, and the video often dropped quality or skipped, not due to internet speed either, my gaming rig running next to it at the same time would run flawlessly and my internet speed was only half used between both during my tests. I actually had slightly better luck with the edge browser built into windows 10 for youtube video. It used a bit less overall. Anything flash based website wise tends to use higher cpu % as well. I'd suggest leaving the computer on and make sure it completes all updates and virus scans and if at idle you are at 4-10% usage then see what happens. These cpus are not power houses unfortunately and my N3700 platforms feel pretty slow even on linux. Especially if you are coming from something significantly faster.

Thank you for your help, it was the AV who slowed my laptop while starting it, now its better, its starting faster.

Thank you all for your help, I really appreciate and respect all of you for the time you spent to help people in need.

 

I've remove Avast and installed Bitdifender and now its way better, at start doesen't eat 60-100% of my CPU and its faster overall.

 

Thank you again, have a nice weekend!
