Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Windows Task Manager

\015 As Windows loads it runs normally, then a bit later some program loads (last one to load #42) and the Task Manager goes to 100% and stays there. Commit Charge: less than 500M out of 3421M.With all the other programs loaded it is impossible to spot which one it is.It is NOT a virus or adware, that is causing this.Is there an utility that can tell me when this problem loads and what order it loads in, as well as the name of the program that is causing this problem.Or some way to identify the source of the problem.\015\012I have Win XP, 1.5GB Ram, SP3, Norton Internet Security 2009. 50% free Hard drive space. It is currently using just 35% of my available RAM.Yet 100% CPU usage!\015\012Ya, Ya! Don't tell me it is the Norton or to get rid of it.BTW I just reinstalled the OS.\015\012This is on a Gateway 6022GZ Laptop - (no matter what I was forced to click on instead.)\015

Answers :

Task Manager will tell you.
\015\012If you click on the Processes tab it gives a list of what is running and there is normally a column for CPU, if your does not have one go to the menu item View, select Select Columns and put a check mark next to CPU.
