CPU constantly at 100%

  1. Hi, anyone got any experience of problems with the CPU running constantly at 100% (and consequently at too high a temperature)? I recently installed a new CD writer and it came with Nero Express software, I have since discovered that removal of the software gets rid of the problem (but I can't use the cd writer!) Any ideas?? I've posted this on the software/cooling boards in case I've chosen the wrong forum.
    Thanks, Nick

    process explorer from system internals will tell you which process is using all that CPU power.

    If it is nero express, then is there an option to do a custom install and install they very min of what you need... and see if that helps?

    Some software may not be compatible with your operating system. I have seen problems similar to this caused by CDRW software when a computer would always reboot after you shut down. You might look for a newer version of that program from the maker of the software on-line.
