Re: CPU Activity


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!'

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,
