    I have run Pitstop test on my Gateway 1200 Select Computer with O/S Windows ME. Everything checks out just fine consistently but under "Windows ME" - the CPU Load had run from 35% to 84%. (Should be 0%?) I have disabled the start-up programs, and run the test again and again with virtually no significant change. The computer does not have any bots - at least per SpyBot program. It has been scanned, defragmented, etc. etc. etc. Any suggestions? To date it seems to be running fine - but I would like to fix this before something happens - an ounce of prevention.........lol! My latest test result is at http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=8TV9VW8BYLPSBGQD

    Try downloading ProcessExplorer from this site. It is freeware and will give you a task by task breakdown of cpu usage. It might help pinpoint the problem.

    Other utilities there can be helpful as well (regmon, filemon....)
