I have read some threads from other gamers here about their CPU usage being 100% maxed most of the time. Mostly I have come across this being the result of other programs like svchost.exe or virus/trojans etc that they say is the culprit, but what if the culprit is the game itself that I play? What can be done here? I am running a 1.4 Ghz processor and have 512mb of DDR RAM installed. In my task manager I get mostly 2, 3, 8 cpu usage except when I run the game and the game pegs my cpu at 100%. I will say right now that I am not the most tech savvy person on the planet but when something is wrong I tend to read posts like this one and troubleshoot myself so I can learn more (knowledge is empowerment). I know I dont have any viruses (I keep my virus software updated) but I am not sure if I need to update any specific drivers on my system. I run XP and do believe I have installed the SP2. If you need any more info on my comp to help me troubleshoot this issue more pls let me know. I look forward to your inputs on this issue.
