I have a Pentium 4 3.2 GHZ. My friends 2.8ghz usally uses 1% of the cpu. My cpu usage shown on the task manager is usually 25%. When I play games, this rises to 100% and my cpu overheats and computer shuts down automatically. I would just like to know if there are any settings for windows xp professional that allows you to configure the amount of cpu usage.
You might want to post a Hijack This log here to see if something else is also in error/running+using alot of cpu. Let us know if you want to know what that is-where to get it / and-or how to post it here. My cpu is 0-2% with nortons running and my browser open- as a comparison.
