Default 100% CPU Usage

Anyone know why I would be running at 100% CPU usage while playing AOE3?

Well, I gotta go now. So ill just say what I think.

Most likely if you have an Intel, with the HT capability, thats probably no enabled. That would really make the game jump to 100%.

Another reason would be some background process.

Possibly your CPU just isnt good enough.

The CPU is concentrated on the game, nothing else.

i agree with nate, it's probably just cause of the game. It's taking up 100% of your CPU. Nothing to worry about as long as when you quit the game, its not still saying 100%

Well, that game is CPU dependant as far as I know.
