    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 can't limit the amount of CPU usage or there would not be enough power to play a game. You can, however, buy a new fan to keep your computer from overheating.

    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.
