My game just keep randomly lagging (FPS lag) and I'm guessing theres a program running the background. So if anyone know a program that can monitor each process seperately so that i can pinpoint which program is causing this lag that woudl be great. Also another way to figure it out would be sweet :)

I don't think this is what I'm looking for. Thanks though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this program doesn't have the ability to monitor processes over an extended period of time and perhaps display them as a graph or something so i could see which application is using alot of processing power at a specific point in time :)

firefox can't be doing much because i have about 10 windows open regularly and it doesn't take any cpu usage i have around the same comp you have. Maybe its some of the other process you have running? maybe something in the startup? i would suggest to post a High jack this! log for the experts to see what maybe on our comp, get it from

Ok, I've got a strange suspicion that it is firefox because when I closed it, CoD2 "SEEMED" to be running fine, I didn't play it for too long, heres the hijack this stuff:

wow you have ALOT of things runnig right at the moment, like a crazy amount i think, maybe go to start>run> type in "msconfig" go to startup and maybe unselect things that re uneeded, if you are not sure what is needed go to this site:

---------------------------------
http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?
---------------------------------

type in the name of the process in the search bar and it willl come up with a list of what it does, but maybe it would be better to wait for the more experianced techs
