    i have a p4 1.5 and something is weird.......it is my cpu usage.

    when i am doing nothing, ok jus printing something off the net, my whole som starts to lag. and when i go and check my cpu usage, it is at 100 for like 10 sec then it gradually goes down to like 20 then goes up again to 100. this happens alot of times, jus doing minor stuff and my cpu usage goes crazy. it also happens when i wanna bring my taskbar up (my taskbar is autohide) :)

    wats wrong wif it??

    Yes... my 1.7GHz Pentium 4 runs at 0 or 1% idle, it takes a LOT of activity to push it to 100%. The only time it does that is when I'm running UD Cancer Research.

    Some other system specs may help - certain hardware can do that as well :?:

    Going along with what Wiggo was asking... look for a program running called "Fast Find". It is installed automatically with Office 97, and is probably the biggest piece of garbage that has ever come out of the Microsoft Lair (yep... even worse than WinME). You'll find it hiding in your Startup folder on the Start button if it's installed. Dump it and reboot.

    There are other little programs that cause this problem too, but this is one of the more common ones, so thought I'd bring it up.

    Good luck! :)
