Task manager shows my CPU usage at 100% and my computer lags a lot RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using windows xp sp3.  when I boot up although my computer shows only moderate HDD access my task manager shows 100% usage all the time.  The computer is slow to open applications. and my router/modem shows a lot of activity until I turn Peer Block to block http access.  This state is proving to be very annoying.  I've tried rebooting several times with no change.  Is there any help for these problems.

  • can you go to task manager, click on the process tab and sort it by cpu to see if there is anything in particular eating up the cpu?
