Hey, laptop tends to run like crap every now and then. Earlier today SYSTEM(not system idle process) was using 80% of CPU. Also, since i rarely ever use battery power, i want my cpu to run at max speed all the time. I have disabled the speed step process in bios but cpu still does not run at full power all the time. I scan for viruses daily and adaware/spyware is a daily scan as well. I use power Defrager every day too. Plus, random programs will use 99% of cpu too. Main ones i notice a lot are winamp, firefox, aim, msn(sometimes) and once in a blue moon, outlook. Any clues as to what could possible cause the system to run slow?
