Thread: 75% CPU load when idle

    I was of the understanding that DDhelp.exe was something not to be deleted.

    How can I shut these running tasks down...I've shut all that I can in the system config utility, and with Ctrl-Alt-Del, but how do I shut the rest down?

    I've had a lot of spyware on my PC recently, and think (?!) I've got rid of it all, is it possible I've missed something that hides itself from the running tasks list in sys info and Si Sandra?

    This is really annoying me now!!!!!!!!!!

    Cheers for the help so far!

    :shoot3:

    Start/Run and type " msconfig " (w/o the " " ) and hit Enter, then go to the Startup tab and untick the unwanted programs but do not untick anything else, especially any power profiles. ;)

    Using MS Config utility doesn't present me with a way of stopping the list of running programs (seen above 4 or 5 posts).

    I pressume it must be a background application that is churning away when my pc is idle. Could it be something from BIOS....wake up on xxxxxxx?!?! Or something like that?!?!

    Maybe it's just a Win98 problem?!

    Or maybe it's the :flames:

    Did you use it to stop the Rnaapp.exe? :?:

    It's not a Win98 prob but that program above is probably the cause (I've had this one before but I can't remember the app that goes with it atm, Norton Antivirus maybe). ;)

    Could the problem be due to IRQ sharing/conflicts?!

    Some of the shared IRQ's are as follows.....don't know why it repeats either!!!!

    - ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering
    - 512i digital audio

    - ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering

    - VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
    - VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
    - NVIDIA Geforce 2 MX/MX400

    I've disabled ACPI in BIOS

    Rnaapp.exe is a windows proggy, it is used to control the modem, whenever a program is using the modem it goes through Rnaapp.exe, if the modem is not in use then that program should stop, if it keeps running when yer not connected to the net, or if it is running when yer system starts up and you arent connected to the web then there is a prob with it.
