  1. Hi by the way (first post :))

    Basically I didnt know where to put this.

    My computer has been running very slowly with consistent 50% CPU usage...

    Dont know whats wrong with it, wondering on the steps I can take to sort it out.

    I guess starting with some kind of process log for you guys to look at?

    Any help would be appreciated..

    Generally is it good to provide more details about your computer and your OS. One quick place to start is always the Task Manager (check out this link on wiki Windows Task Manager ). To see what process is using the most CPU. If you find that out, report back with more details on your system so that someone can help you figure out your issue.

    Helpful to know your computer brand and model, as well as age and configuration.
