window vista --high cpu usage
just recently, my ibm lenovo 3000 became slugginsh.
Resource Monitor shows explorer is consuming a lot of CPU, above 50%
(even in safe mode, although in safemode system seems to run
ran anti virus and no virus detected.
in safe mode system ran normally.
ran in diagnostic mode which has fewer servies running than the safe
mode and the cpu just absolutely crawled.
so it seems that it's not the running services that are causing the
cpu to slow down.
i tried to log in as a different user, whose account i created fresh
it's also slow.
In normal mode, even if all services and startup are disabled, system
is still slow.
does anyone have suggestions.
thank you in advance.
