I'm having a problem with my new computer. It had no Hard Disk in the computer so I bought one from e-bay which was perfectly fine. I've since installed a Genuine Microsoft XP Professional, and just yesterday had my Tiscali Broadband connected.
Now here's the problem. I know one of the problems is java.exe (which runs whenever I run the game I play), however it seems to take up an AWFUL lot of CPU usage. When I first used the game I play, I never had this problem and it would run perfectly fine. Only this morning has the problem began.
However, with the java.exe program not running I still have some CPU usage there, which jumps around between 4 and 80 percent. I know it is possible if you stop doing anything, close everything down and run Windows Task Manager and see your CPU usage it can and probably should go to 0 percent. Since today, my computer has been unable to do so.
I have run Adaware, which found 11 problems (all were cookies) and fixed them, and I have also ran Registry Mechanic, System Mechanic, Spybot S&D, and used the online TrendMicro Anti-virus program. Registry Mechanic and System Mechanic fixed some things, and optomised some things but hasn't got rid of my problem.
I have 2 sticks of 256 RAM in my computer (However my computer only shows 256 RAM total?) so I don't think it is my RAM running short, and also considering System Mechanic managed to defragment 70.1 of RAM. I have tried anything and everything to sort out this problem, but it just won't go away.
I have a feeling it might just be my internet connection. I received a letter from Tiscali telling me it can take up to 10 days for the broadband line to settle into it's top speed. However, I am constantly connected at 8.1MB, and I am not getting disconnected whatsoever.
The game I play was smooth movements and all yesterday, however now it seems to just be rather "juttery" movements of my character. :p
Can anyone help?
