I just assembled a new system and noticed a few days later that when I enter task manager the cpu is operating at 100%. Then when I enter the processes tab the system is reading between 97-99%. Any help on what I should do is much appreciated, I'm just trying to learn how to do this stuff. I'm pretty green, I've taken a w2k prof class and a networking class but this is beyond my comprehension.

Thanks,

lil'richard

Hiya and welcome

In Win98, there was a program called MSCONFIG. There isn't one in 2000, but there is one that you can download:

What we'll do first, is look at your Startup. Go to Run and type MSINFO32. On the left, choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list.

Regards
