Cpu Usage Periodically Spikes To ~40% (every Few Seconds)

If you have Norton AV you may have to (once at the site) disable the "auto protect "feature to allow scan to run. But, I'm now trying without tabmixplus, which might cause some of the trouble (as good a guess as any). when i pull it out of the usb port the usage drops way down and stays at around 2 %. on CPU intensive games.(every solve tried!) solved Slight FPS drop/spikes/freeze when loading new texture in every games solved CPU almost idling when opening up programs and games, why?

Run that, and then take a look at the CPU column (in percent). Windows XP has a lot of new power saving options (hibernate, standby, power down) and modes. This didn't fix it.I have tried a Memory Test. If it is Windows 2000 or Windows XP, you can look in task manager.

This caused Device Manager to refresh every few seconds. I still believe it is the GTX 770. Idk my 770 never lagged.Also send where? turns out it was my HP5610 Printer that was causing the problem!

For the record, seeing three instances of PluginContainer in the Process Explorer listing didn't strike me as unusual. There are two of my characteristic one-minute-separated CPU usage spikes. So if I have no items on a giant map, and walk, barely any lag spikes. I'm also suffering from this problem.

I check task mananger and found a perfect heart beat of 0% then 19% in time with the mouse jerks/animation problems etc Although I dont have a Dell machine I do I am presuming this is the motherboard. Got to be something wrong there. -RAM: Could be something wrong. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/cpu-usage-periodically-spikes-to-40-every-few-seconds.612601/ See also Troubleshoot and diagnose Firefox problems & http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_-_Firefox The support articles do not cover about:memory it is considered an advanced topic and a lot of it is beyond me.

And something that occurred in the past.The first problem that occurred in my computer was that when I turned it on, it white screened. If you use hundreds of tabs for hours on end with dozens of plugins and add-ons it is impossible to demonstrate a simple and reproducible problem that someone is able to Okay, in that case it is likely drivers or a software issue. I don't think Process Monitor can display the name of threads, but I haven't messed around with the program long enough.

nothing happened and this is why i come to you taking out the batter doesnt even work. More hints Is there a similar project/tool for FireFox code profiling? specs. Using windows task manager there are no proccesses which show up as causing this.

Solution tested and tried but not working : 1) Run every available Spyware and Anti-Virus scan in the market 2) Change broadcasting state of router to private. 3) Closing all processes Regards Howard Aug 17, 2006 #14 Benz2002 TS Rookie Posts: 17 I dunno if this helps I have discovered that majority of CPU usage spikes are caused by Internet Explorer. When I looked into Task Manager, it would show chrome.exe and Steam.exe on the top, each using no more than 4% of CPU, in spite of the CPU load bouncing up Thanks everyone.

The computer is not part of a domain, though I am physically connected to a network that uses Netware and Active Directory.Filemon (sysinternals) shows that the "svchost -k netsvcs" process is

I would also run an online scan (if you can get to load:Trojan again?) at: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.aspAt beginning check box to auto-clean all found.Once at the site, if you have installed Sun I several users who have gone over to Chrome because of this bug. Unexpectedly I did note it had one instance of plugincontainer.exe running, that was unexpected, and at present unexplained. Make sure all connection are secure and tight.

very odd. I figured my problem had something to do with networking because I didn't have the issue with my IBM T41 at home on my wireless network, only at work when docked. i had this problem for about a month till the HDD died. As for the differences between use of the two profiles, you have those two profiles to compare and that may provide clues.

I am using a Razer Diamondback USB mouse and an external LCD monitor. You should have all temp file, games, Documents, Music, etc.
