CPU running at max when running programs

Post by YWxsYmx1Z » Thu, 30 Aug 2007 12:32:00


I've just upgraded from XP to Vista Ultimate and seems that my processor is
always running at max when i run or install programs (the fan noise is
annoying). It also does the the same windows is installing updates. Is this
normal? Do i need to upgrade CPU?

My system: P4 3.0GHz, 2GB RAM, GeForce 8600GTS.
 
 
 

CPU running at max when running programs

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.


it would be normal to run at max during the initial start up to run a program, it should slow down once the program is running , unless it is a resource hog.
installing updates takes a lot of resources.
might be more helpful if you provide some names of programs that DO NOT allow the cpu to throttle back while they are running.
