Ok, im not sure if you guys can help me, or if i even posted in the right section but, im having problems with my computer, dont ask exactly what because im a noob and i dont know. The problem occures during extracting files, scanning for virus, spyware etc. My CPU usage flies up like crazy to around 70-90% and it takes about 15 mins to extract a basic 1.5 gig tar/rar file.
I took some stats from mirc while extracting a file and and while not
The following is while extracting:
(CPU) 1-IntelŪ PentiumŪ 4 CPU 1.80GHz, 7868MHz, 512KB (70% Load) .:. (RAM) usage: 190/512MB (37.11%) .:. (GFX) RADEON 9600 SERIES - Secondary, (Display) 1024x768/32bit/60Hz
Notice 1.80GHz, 7868MHz how can 1.8 gigs be 7868 MHz
This is while doing regular stuff:
(CPU) 1-IntelŪ PentiumŪ 4 CPU 1.80GHz, 1817MHz, 512KB (0% Load) .:. (RAM) usage: 184/512MB (35.94%) .:. (GFX) RADEON 9600 SERIES - Secondary, (Display) 1024x768/32bit/60Hz
everything seems normal and runs normal speed.
I thought at first it could be a driver im missing but now im not so certain
Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
