hey guys my pc was running a bit slowewr than normal and when i pressed ctrl,alt,del the screen that comes up is not the one that normally appears.

I do not get a list of all the things that are running anymore so i cannot see what is using what of my CPU.........the only way i know it is running at %100 CPU is to run my cursor over the symbol in the bottom right hand side toolbar.

I hope that someone can help me as i cannot see what is using all my CPU.

Hi Martin Smiley
Download this Free application

http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/Autoruns.zip

This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.

For more info click this link: http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Autoruns.html

This will at least SHOW you what is Running and being loaded.

Let us know if you have any more questions.

thank you that is great.......but the problem is that i cannot see what is using all my CPU up.

My PC has slowed down quite a bit and i cannot see which application is using all my CPU up !!!!!!!!!

When i do press CTRL,ALT DEL a little icon appears at the bottom right od my screen and when i roll the cursor over it it says that i have got CPU usage of %100 is this normal?

Is there anyway of finding out what is using it all?

thanks

Goto START>RUN
Type " taskmgr " without the quotes.
Let me know if it pops up.

If that works try this...

Go into device manager and uninstall your keyboard.

Then reboot your system and let Windows redetect it.

See if that helps.

Hi Taz

 To use the Regedits:
 Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.

To use the VBS Files:
 Download .vbs file and save it to your hard drive (you may want to right click and use Save Target As).  Double
click  the vbs file. You will be prompted when the script is done.

NOTE: If your anti-virus software warns you of  a "malicious" script, this is normal if you have "Script Safe" or similar technology enabled.  These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry.

Disclaimer:  These registry edits and script files are presented "as is".  Every effort has been made to ensure the files work as stated.  I assume no responsibility for your use of these files.



Go ahead and post a HJT log to look over
