Window dragging or image 2D spikes cpu usage to 40 percnt

  1. Firstly dragging a window in windows desktop shouldnt use 40 percent cpu usage, thats what its doing on mine.

    Games run fine and cpu usage is proper. Its the 2D windows. Ive tried everything

    video drivers,, clean install everything,, Ive tried it all,,,,,,

    it makes my system behave like a Athlon XP ,, when dragging a window claims this much cpu power or just image viewing boosts to 20 percent... Before all this happened,,, it was like 1 to 0 percent no matter what I did in windows, as far as moving or dragging or videos or image viewing,, This has messed up mmy whole windows to be slow,, since everything draws in 2D ,, and it takes up high spikes...

    Is the 2D processor on my card dead ? However its still working and fast,, sheeez

    Why are you so worrying about that?

    Did you post the HiJackThis in the security forum, and see if you have caught anything.

    I have the same problem right just like yorrs.. Same thing.

    Still looking for solution

    Its not the graphics card or RAM , or CPU ,, has something wrong with OS..

    Makes it behave like an Athlon xp? I'm sorry but I have several Athlon xp's and none of them do that. Good luck finding an answer.
