Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My Acer laptop CPU runs at 91% utilization with no programs open. The system and system idle process never stop running. Any ideas ?


Answers :

This sounds like a virus,spyware or adaware problem. Something is consuming resources. Try running full scan and see the results. If it does not find anything try to download Malware Bytes and run quick scan. It is very good software and it is free. Go to download.com and search it in search bar. Also if all fails boot to safe mode and check is it running the same way or is it running normal. If normal then its a virus and if not it might be processor issue. Just reboot your PC and keep on tapping F8 key and choose safe mode from the menu that comes up. Log in to administrator account with no password. If you cant just use normal account to log in to safe mode. Hope this helps.
