Q: cpu usage shows 100% in taskmanager

A friend of mine installed windows 2000 on his machine and now it is very slow. When he brings up task manager it shows cpu usage at 100% with explorer.exe showing most usage. Any ideas what could be causing this??

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Ok my sister is using compaq armada m700 window 2000 professional. The problem in that desktop is showing up but there are no icons no taskbar no start menu. only wallpaper. pressing alt ctrl del shows up taskmanager but there are no adware or other such processes running up only system processes, i can run programs through it and other things like softwares. i have gone through 20 to 30 forums trying various tips but nothing worked. Please help urgently. last thing she did was paste cliparts from cd to harddrive. thanks.
 

A:desktop shows up but no icons or taskbar or startmenu. Only taskmanager.

Open Task Manager, go to File > New Task (Run), and type: explorer.exe then hit return. If your desktop and icons appear then we know your problem is that explorer.exe doesn't auto run (and we need to find out why). If no desktop, then explorer.exe is probably missing or corrupted.

My PF Usage in TaskManager doubles the increase when I open a new tab in the Internet Explorer. It shouldn't increase that much. Can anyone help me with this problem? I have posted my new log of HiJackThis! I would be mostly appreciated. Thank you.

Greetings, been away awhile but have a busy CPU question. At idle, one of my CPUs (dual core AMD 3800) oscillates. It continues to do this even when I shut down all user processes. Performance seems ok. I don't understand why it is doing this. I will attach a .gif screen capture. Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions on diagnosing.

A:CPU Usage in taskmanager

Did you try sorting the process list by CPU usage and seeing which ones figure at the top?

Use an advanced process monitor like Process Explorer from Sysinternals. It will show you system processes too.

Most likely it is your firewall or antivirus hogging the machine. Are you a Norton or Zonealarm user?

Just recently I noticed that the CPU is going all the time (The bottom of the laptop is very hot to the touch; and I can hear the CPU fan constantly going). Even when I get the CPU usage down < 5%, I can still hear it. Also, when I disconnect it from the outlet; the battery drains FAST. In the past it the laptop quiets down and cools off if left idle for awhile, so this is something that is happening recently.

After noticing it, I ran a scan with MBAM - it found and removed a few Malware.Trace registry keys but that didn't seem to help.

Anyway, thanks to everyone in advance for all your help (It really is appreciated)

Hi,

some days ago, when analyzing another problem, i stumbled upon a fatal error in the CPU performance display in the Microsoft task manager. I wrote a little bit about this problem in the following post.

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2269972-weird-4gbit-s-nic-limit-without-rss?page=1#entry-8853...

In summary: for me, the task manager as well as the resource monitor and the performance monitor do not show the correct CPU utilization.

Here is an example.

I start a test and the CPU display of core 0 climbs to 100% in Task Manager.




The Resource Monitor shows the same thing.




Only the performance monitor shows the correct load, but the display it "inconsistent".




The processor load is normally shown up to max. 100%, but my core 0 run according to the performance monitoring with up to 120%. ??

The Process Explorer shows the correct utilization of my core 0.



HWiNFO also shows the load correctly.



I suddenly had the following apprehension.
If you cannot correctly measure the utilization of a system, so it's not possible to control its performance properly. ??

So I immediately opened a support ticket at Microsoft by telephone and then described the problem accordingly by email.

A few hours later I received an email with the following text. "Dear Mr. Fuchs, your support case has been closed."

That can not be true. ?
Dear Microsoft, determining and displaying the CPU loa... Read more

Let's see what's auto-loading and running in the background and if any obvious issues need to be addressed.

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4.

After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

After it's been installed, start it and then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan is finished in less than 30 seconds, a log file will appear.

Save that log file.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire log file here.

The Task Manager shows CPU Usage of around 50%. No apps is being up. The Start Up apps on MS Config are all turned off. Icons shown on the System Tray are speaker, network, AV and IME. The CPU usage of around 50% does not appear any transient phenomina which may be caused by app software automatically running in the background. I have just run AV for full scan but no virus, worm or spyware detected.(AV is Symantec Endpoint Protection 11).

The PC is a dual CPU system running Vista Ultimage SP2b and thus the Task Manager displays two CPU Usage Histories. One of them shows about 30% and other one shows about 75%. The Processes on the Task Manager shows System Idle Process 80% to 97% but the CPU Usage on the status bar shows around 47% to 60%. I think the CPU Usage under the above described condition should be 0 to 3%. I wonder what the problem is. Could anyone shed light on this?

A:CPU Usage shows too high %

Hello Churin,

You might check in Resource Monitor under the CPU section to see if it can help you track down what is using up so much of your CPU.

Other than malware, the usualt culprits are Disk Defragmenter, Index, Sytem Restore creating a restore point, antivirus program, 3rd party anti-malware type program, etc.....

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi all,

I've spent some time looking around for a solution but I have been unable to find anything that helps. I'm hoping someone here can give me a clue as to what my issue/problem could be.

I'm finding that I can leave my PC on for no more than 8 hours. After 8 hours ram usage spikes to 100% applications start to crash and I then am forced to reboot the system.

I thought it could be multiple things - I replaced the SSD with a brand new one. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling video drivers, I removed the latest applications I have installed, I have looked at process explorer and RAMMap and i'm not finding any applications that are using more memory than they actually should. These applications all look good..

I grabbed a data set from Performance Monitor to show what I have been seeing and it doesn't look normal to me. Does anyone have any ideas on what the issue could be? Could it be a Windows patch or bad ram at this point? Is my video card is bad shape?

Hi guys,

I've got this problem 2 days ago where my PC started slowing down and i've been getting random BSODs mainly "Special Pools Detected etc & Memory Management" When i start up the PC its slow and it takes alot longer to just open even a folder. I've tried searching for such problems and i've tried almost everything i know to try and fix this but i guess i'm still in-experienced when it comes to problems like this.

It happened 2 days ago after i played an online game i got a BSOD and couldn't remember what it was. So i restarted and the problem started. The most recent hardware change was that i changed my RAM from 4gb to 8gb and nothing else. I did not install any new programs recently. So initially i thought it might be the RAM causing this problem so i changed it back to the ones i had previously. Here are the specs of my PC.

Processor : Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E7500 @2.93GHz 2.93Ghz
Installed Memory (RAM) : 4.00GB (I have 2x 4GB Rams from Cosair that i got from my friend and it was working fine on his computers so i do not know if its the Rams)
System Type : 64-bit Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premium
Service Pack 1

Anyway i've scanned the PC using Avira, Spybot & Avast and there were 0 findings so i hope i am right to assume that my computer has not been infected with malware/spyware. But still in the task manager, the CPU Usage % and Memory Usage shoots up whenever i do any sort of action, eg. Refresh on... Read more

I once had a Brother printer that we used long ago. I found the related folders, but they were small. Brother does not show in Programs and Features. Tried looking with Revo Uninstaller as well. Searched for Brother with Regedit. No loose change of 24GB floating around.

How do I find and delete this to make this usable space again?

Attaching snip of Storage App to show usage.
Thanks

I have a brand new laptop (2 weeks old) that randomly freezes for as long as a minute in which nothing works. I have 8gb of ram and a 4th gen Intel processor so I can't imagine why this would happen. At first I was afraid of malware/spyware and was helped out on another forum in which it was determined my machine should be clean. They have directed me here now. The computer is virtually empty. I haven't transferred any of my old files from my previous pc over. 
 
The freezing happens randomly, generally while online. Chrome will indicate that it's waiting for the cache.It is not however specific to Chrome, happens with firefox and IE too. Sometimes I will be in Microsoft Word and it will freeze. We did hard disk checks and everything showed fine. 
 
Any help you can offer is appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

System has over the last several months continued to slow down.  IE after booting up will sometimes open, but will quickly hang with not responding message or restarting message.  When this occurs, the system slows to the point that no other programs will be usable.  if I wait long enough, it appears to have short restarts, but eventually I need to reboot.  Sometimes it is so bad need to do the "power button" reboot.
 
Downloaded Firefox to see if that helps, but same issue.  Reset IE to default and that appeared to help for a short period.(minutes, not days).
 
I note that the HD light flashes almost solid during the hang periods.  It seems like something is thrashing.  I check the disk and it does not appear to be fragmented.
 
When I run in safe mode, which I needed to do to get this post sent, everything appears to run normally.
 
Below is the output from FRST program.

About a year ago, I noticed that my computer was running slow (both online and off) and that the explorer.exe process listed in the Windows Task Manager was usually running very high. Windows Explorer seemed to crash a lot as well. A few months ago, I attempted to install Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 on my computer and before the install completed a warning window popped up saying something like 'there is already another instance of Kaspersky running' (which was not the case since this was the first time I had ever attempted to install Kaspersky software) and the install failed. When I rebooted my computer, I got the blue screen of death for a few seconds and then Windows booted with a message saying that Windows had recovered from a serious problem. Since recovering from whatever happened after the failed Kaspersky install, my computer is slower than ever and the Task Manager still shows a high CPU usage even though the System Idle Process is high and there isn't any processes listed that are using much CPU time at all.

I just scanned my system with the latest updated versions of AdAware, Spybot S&D, SuperAntiSpyware, and Avira AntiVir. All of them found nothing. I then cleaned my computer with CCleaner and ran HijackThis.

Here is the log:

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

Hi, Recently i've noticed my system is only using 2gb of ram and is running really slowly. I run a Rampage III Motherboard with 6gb of ripjaw ram. However only 2gb of ram is being used for some reason.
I read a bit about going into the bios and looking for a "memory remapping" setting but there was not one.
I also unchecked the box for max memory in msconfig > boot > advanced options.

Any suggestions would be great!

I just reinstalled Windows 7 64bit after a crash. I reconnected my second HDD to the machine where prior to the crash I stored all my photos and music.

The problem is that there appears to be no folders or files visible in the drive, despite it showing over 300GB of used space. See the attached screenshot for a better view of what I am talking about.

Drive F is the first partition on the drive
Drive G is the second partition on the drive

--Both should have a ton of data on them, but I can't see any folders.

Am I missing something stupid? I'm not panicked yet, but drive F is really important to me.
Thanks EDIT***I just booted into the same PC via a Knoppix Live DVD and this OS sees all my files just as pretty as you please... so clearly the data is all there (thank the FSM), but Windows is misconigured. This is a gonna be a facepalm when I figure out what I did wrong isnt it?

When I run Virtual Win XP and the program that runs in it is manipulating a database (apparently processor intensive), the virtual XP task manager shows the processor is running ~90%. At the same time, the physical machine's task manager shows the physical processor is running 25-30%. The virtual machine has 3712MB of ram allocated to it, and there isn't much hard drive activity. Anyway, I'm curious if anyone else has run into this bottle neck and if there's anything to do about it. It seems like my physical machine has more resources to put on the virtual machine than it's capable of using or something like that.

Thanks

Hi guys. I just upgraded my processor to an AMD 8350. It replaced my Phenom. This is the 3rd day the new processor has been in the computer. First two days everything went fine. Ran Prime 95 and IBT to make sure i was up and stable. This morning (3rd day) got up, turned on the computer, and now i have less usable ram than i had last night. No matter how many times i restart, it shows less in windows than what bios shows. It says either 4,6, or 8gb usable ram (it changed just about every time too). I have reseated all the ram. I have moved them around. I have reseated the processor. I have clean installed windows 7 home premium x64. Does anyone have any ideas? This is the first issue with RAM i have ever ran into. Also, when i am in bios, and i go to the RAM settings, everything shows up like it is supposed to. Details, options, timings, etc. Not really sure where to go from here.

A:12gb ram shows in bios, only 4,6,or 8 usable shows in windows

In most AMD CPUs, the memory controller is on-die in the CPU. Maybe your FX-8350 is malfunctioning.

Also:

- Do you have the correct voltage for your memory set in BIOS?
- What kind of memory is it? (brand name, model, and speed)
- Have you tried putting the Phenom back in to see if the 12GB memory comes back?

I have a strange problem with this computer running windows vista home premium x64.

If I go to C:\Windows and do a right-click on the "SchCache" folder and select properties,
the size of the folder shows 40.7 GB used.

If I try to open that folder, there is nothing in there. I have "show hidden files and folders" checked
and "hide protected operating system files" unchecked, so it's not a matter of simple hidden files.

Now it gets interesting...if I go back and try right-clicking again on the SchCache folder and select
properties, it no longer shows 40.7 GB used! It says zero bytes!

If I reboot the computer and repeat the whole procedure from the beginning, the folder properties will
return to showing a large number of gigabytes used the first time I select right-click-properties, and
then shows zero afterwards...

Malware and Spyware scans always show nothing. I've run rkill, avast, malwarebytes, tdsskiller, ETC.
and nothing is ever found.

Any ideas what is happening?
