    Hello all,

    My computer has NO viruses and NO spyware....(scanned and everything......and still nothing!)

    and still my CPU usage jumps to 99% and 95% and stays like that for sometime then drops down to like 5% and 3% and stays at that for sometime then jumps up again!! getting annoying as my computer slows down loads!

    windows XP
    i got 1 GB of ram
    1.7 Ghz processor

    (its a laptop....)

    so whats up with my laptop then? :confused: anything can cause high CPU usage?

    i assume you pressed ctrl alt delete to bring that up? go the processes tab, sort by 'cpu', and see what task/tasks are taking up all that processing power. end the process if you can
