Re: CPU Activity




Mike,

This can also be a indication that it is a virus or trojan that could
be causing this. Run a thorough scan with your antivirus program to help
make sure your not infected. You should also scan with the free Spybot
Search & Destroy to help also. You can get it from here:

'The home of Spybot-S&D!'
(http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html)

Next, navigate to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS". You will have
to give permission before you can open the "PRINTERS" folder. Delete
anything that is in that folder. Now, uninstall and reinstall your
printer drivers.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Shawn. Lots of great stuff there.
Print Spooler is again using 48% on the CPU. Step 20 didn't apply, I
didn't
have the "Automatically Search for Network Printer" option available to
uncheck.

Mike,

These items should help increase the performance of your computer.
Step
20 may help with the printer after you enable the Print Spooler
again.
