CPU peaks on processes
I'm still on XP, no serious issues.
Still I spotted a strange behaviour that is hard to explain.
Not often, when I listen to a stream with my foobar (as a rule), the output gets jammed, like "Oh pretty b-b-b-b-ba-yyyyyyyy-bi---".
Well, this time I resorted to my Task Manager.
Tab 1 looked o'k, I switched to see the processes. At first glance they too looked o'k, but then I noticed a couple of them peak up time to time - from 1 to 20+ and more; having a look at the CPU gobble tab, the peaks were multiple and battered the ceiling.
There were no browsers open. A folder, foobar, and a couple of RTFs. Those peaking I noticed were the foobar process and explorer.exe - I didn't scroll further down.
Yes, I have an MSE full scan scheduled on Sunday-Monday, and it usually takes more than 6 hours now (ending like after 9am usually) - but I didn't see MSE running, even opened it to make sure.
What do you think?
Thank you for that information, Steve!
What do you think if it happens after closing things? Like a browser, or that MSE, too, maybe?
It's often for a while after closing stuff...
