Thread: I find this hard to believe

    Yesterday I was surfin, dl'ing, editing images, posting, swapping files, playing MP3's, etc.,etc.,etc., -generally all=around making good use of my system. And of course UD was operating in the background the whole time.

    Well when I went to bed I configured the system for "UD mode" ie. connect and disconnect automatically, monitor powerdown after 5 minutes etc.

    Well when I woke up, first thing - give the ol' mouse a wiggle to wake the monitor, make sure UD is going OK. No problem, crunching away:thumb:

    So's I go to the good ol' System Information utility (Win98 SE) and it tells me my system resoures are at 33%:eek:

    Is that even remotely possible?? I mean come on, I've never gotten below about 64% before. Admittedly a couple things got a little dodgy during the session - but nothing that required a reboot or anything.
    I'd think that at 33% I would have had a serious lock-up or most likely a BSOD - but the system was still going OK. It did merit a reboot, I knew that before I used the Sysinfo. But you know, have to time that just right to take as little a hit on the UD tim as possible.

    So what do you think, a software glitch, or does this PC deserve some kind'a Windows endurance medal?

    Yes that's happens when ya been usin' a lot of apps as it happens here quite regularly so after a [H]ard day of crunchin' progs I always restart to clear the memory and regain those resources. It's just a natural Win9x thing and btw I've had mine down to 21% but still runnin' even if a bit slow. ;)

    I'm aware of the phenomenon/curse of Windows 9x.
    I just never would have thought it would even run at 33% free resources -- but 21% you say:eek:

    you got a real "never say die" system there:thumb:


    must have been the bidding at eBay that brought the system so low:laugh:

    It has me freaked actually:eek:

    The only reference I have found to CoolSrv.exe anywhere on the web is in some Swedish OC forum, and I have absolutely no clue what is being said in there.

    I am very afraid

    Anybody got an answer for Grim Reaper!!

    If it is a bot of some type, it is a very poorly coded one at 99% CPU utilization.
