\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012im experiencing 100% cpu usage whenever i start up my laptop. it stays at 100% for 15-20 minutes and then the usage goes back to normal, that is, around 1-15%. but for the first 15 20 mins after starting up the laptop i'm unable to use my laptop for anything!! what could be causing this??\015

Answers :

You have too many programs queued to run at startup. Click "Start" and then "Run". Type in "MSCONFIG" and hit return.

Click the startup tab and this is a listing of all the programs that load at startup. Keep all your firewall and antivirus programs, but you can shut off just about anything else, like Java Updater, Quicktime, iTunes updater, etc. etc.
Could be an overload of Apps/Programs starting up with windows. There are several good utilities to maintain/tune up windows that will allow you to edit your startup items and stop all additional applications except for Anti Virus and Firewall from starting with Windows. Doing so will not prevent the use of said applications, just keeps them from starting/loading and trying to update every time you start your system. There could be other reasons for the delay/CPU usage but this is the most likely in my opinion. \015\012Other than your Security software as mentioned above, you shouldn't be concerned about stopping software from starting with your system as the utilities that allow you to edit your start up items doesn't allow you to cancel any Windows required systems.
