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. http://www.sysinternals.com/

    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.
