Windows Vista using more CPU than ever before! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been having this problem for a long time now, and it seems it get worse every time I reinstal Vista.

    The problem is: every time I open a program like Media center/ any games like World of Warcrfat/FEAR, Vista start to use more CPU than the program it self and then my PC start lagging badly (the programs that cause the problem are usually Task manager and svchost) up to a point wer Vista almost frezer. I have done countless virus checks and with no luck at all nothing is found.

    I have even been shuting down some unneeded services but it still doesn't help a bit.

    I have an Asus G2P, Intel Dual Core 2.0Gh, 2Gb of Ram, an ATI Radeon 1700 video card and a 160Gb of HDD.

    Thanks for you time and I hope to get a responce ASAP!
