hey guys my problem is that my cpu will always be at 100% usage when i run certain programs for some unkown reason, i have an acer laptop with over 1gb of ram so what i am doing should not be eating up so much memory i wouldnt think, this in turn will lag programs and things such as videos on youtube for example.

i just got off another topic area and i am sure that my computer is 100% spyware/virus/malware free but these lag spikes are still occurring

please does anyone have any ideas!?!? :thumbsup:

is a log of some sort needed for more info?

I just finished looking at your logs from the Hijack this forum: I saw that you Have or had eMule and Ultratorrent. Your high cpu usage may come from those programs communicating the files in your shared folders or looking for files that you are attempting to get.

things such as I explorer, msn and virus scans are the catalysts for the spikes, i am fairly sure that it is not emule or utorrent as they have not been running during the spikes but i will un install them just to make sure.

this is extremely frustrating and any additional help is much appreciated

I would try running the system file checker.

The torrents will take up processing power when they're running - that's the whole point of file-sharing (you share yours).

Is it your RAM (memory) or your CPU (processor) that is running at 100%? Virus scans will eat up as much of your system as they can - they are very active programs. What happens when the scans stop?

The MSN and Explorer issues could be related to file system corruption from a virus that's been removed. Sometimes the virus will destroy parts of the OS that aren't apparent at the first look. If so, that calls for the SFC.EXE tool that Budapest recommended.
