    hi everybody,
    i have an important problem with my windows
    i tried many copies of windows 7 but i have the same problem !!!! (they are all 32bit)

    when i install a game (for exemple: NFS CARBON)
    it works OK for a month of 2 months then, The activity of the processor increases (100% on the widget)

    what should i do ???

    just for let you know:
    i didn't have this problem with the RC (maybe because it was a 64bit ???)

    thanks for helping me !!!!:):):):):)

    Well first things first.. what program is taking the CPU time? It'll typically do the "odd job" now and then.. indexing new files.. defragging if you got that set up, things like that. But it typically only does that when the system is idle; it's probably something you added afterwards. Bring up your task manager of choice and see what's taking the CPU time.

    never ever delete rundll32.exe, this app is used to load shared dll functions and execute them...

    There might be some drivers problem.

    I would suggest checking for malware/spyware first. I would also use three different ones as no software can find all of them.

    if it works well after clean install
    then it's something you or if it's a shared pc, someone else might be doing

    check back your installs, something might not have been ...

    clean install win7 and limit / double check what apps you use

    Exactly, it's just a loader. But what would be more helpful is knowing what it's doing. In the task manager, have it show the command line column. (Or just use Process Explorer and the like, whatever works.) Find out what it's executing. Once you know that, you'll have a much better idea seeing what's what.

    i think the problem is from my computer:
    i installed the same copy of windows on an another computer and all the games worked perfectly

    so i think i'm going to erase the hard disk and install W7 on it (cleeeeaaan install)
    thanks for your help
