:banghead: To put it short: the CPU jumps to 100% with no reason. On idle it sticks to 60%-70% (it should stay at 4%-5%) and if I try to do anything (open Windows explorer for example) the **** thing jump to 100%. It happened ones befor and I preinstall the OS, thinking something went rong there. It was OK for a month or two until today. :cry:

There is the problem: no one. And the CPU temp doesn't go up.

System restore always fucks up my computer. I hate that program with a passion. Just analyze what could be eating up your MHz.

Woho, I have had that same problem some time ago too!
On my comp, there was a worm doing this stuff. Other than you, I could seperate the Task wich was using 100% and terminate trough Taskmanager, but upon every start of Windows, it came again. Somewhen I managed removing the worm, and, suprise suprise, whole system collapsed.

So if I were you; do a complete backup of all your files before doing anything.

OK, Sys res from yesterday did not help (i try it befor I posted the first time), but the restor point from 4 days ago did the job. i have an idea what fucked up my system as I find some unexpected porn sites in my browser history. I'll kill my flatmates. It's password time.

It does the job in Vista. :)
