Well with NO processes running, my PC jumps between 1% usage and 20% usage.


Has anyone else ever had this problem?
Does anyone know a solution?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Specs? Hyperthreaded P4 or dualcore Athlon64? What does the processes list show as taking up CPU?
CODE
while(!asleep()) {
                    sheep++;
}

Intel Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz Processor
nVidia GeForce FX 5950 Ultra

I've closed every process except the once the system needs, firefox, and explorer and I still get the problem.

I've never heard of wscntfy.exe . Turn off firefox and msnmessenger, then take a caption of it though. Sometimes FF and MSN can just be system hogs.

Same thing happens without MSN and Firefox, and when i turn off wscntfy.exe it just keeps coming back.

Watch that window you posted and look at which process is acting up.

its the windows security center.

Unless your expiriencing lag or other problems, its completely normal for cpu usage to jump up and down. Ecspecially from 1-20 constantly.
