- - Computer with Windows;
- program TuneUp Utilities.
The easiest way to know how many percent loaded the CPU is. Click on the keyboard Ctrl+Shift+Esc. Immediately after pressing these keys will start the task Manager. Or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Del this will bring up a window. In this window, select "task Manager. After the start task Manager go to the Performance tab. In the upper left corner of the window there is a section "CPU usage". There will display information about the current load on your CPU.
If you want to learn more about processor, you will need to use additional software. Find the Internet utility TuneUp Utilities. If you do not wish to pay for the license, you can download a trial version with limited period of use. Install the program on your computer.
Start it. When TuneUp Utilities is run for the first time, it automatically system scan. Until it is completed. After that, a dialog box will appear with the query system optimization and bug fixes. Agree for this surgery. After its completion you will find yourself in the main menu. Go to "Fix problems" and select the option "Show running processes".
From the bottom of the window displays information about overall processor utilization. Also, the window will display a full list of running processes. Each of them will be written, how much CPU resources it uses. This way you can view which processes are taxing your CPU the most.
If idle CPU load over 10%, it means that in the background is running some program, which uses its resources. You can find this software in the list, and if it is not very popular, then just delete or remove from the startup, thereby removing unnecessary overhead on your CPU.
Advice 2 : How to reduce the load on the CPU
Basically the load on the CPU due to the inclusion of any applications, and system resources are directed to the task. The load on the CPU increases, and by enabling the task Manager, we can see how much she's grown. At 100% load the computer starts to hang, apps are slow, and sometimes the rescue can only restart. Consider the main reasons the CPU usage and solution methods for this problem.

- The program is task Manager
Big load on the CPU is when you start the computer, boot the desktop. Therefore, the appearance of the desktop, you notice how slow the app includes antivirus, gadgets, may, browser, and local programs. All depends on the individual user, and what programs he uses. To resolve this problem, it is necessary to know the configuration of CPU and RAM. This can be done by clicking with the right mouse button on "My computer" and selecting Properties. After all, if the CPU is weak, and he's got 512 megs of RAM, it is not surprising hovering and braking. So you should refer to the autoloader of the application that is responsible for loading certain programs at the time of switching of the system. If you do not use Alcohol, it makes no sense in its startup. Click start - Run – msconfig, a dialog window where you can select the startup tab. We see marked items that are loaded with the system. You can see the name of the program and their path, so remove the check mark from those services that are not needed, click OK.
The next point is to load applications or games that cause CPU usage. Again, you need to pay attention to hardware configuration, there was such a thing before. Check your computer for viruses. When you start the game turn off the applications that require a lot of resources. They may be browsers, chat, players. As a possible, but radical method of solution may be reinstall the system. You can also disassemble the system unit and see not accumulated any dust. Sometimes the load on the CPU can be caused by poor heat transfer in connection with the clogging of the cooler or parts of the CPU (heatsink). Try changing the thermal paste on the processor. If nothing helps, then try to change processors to take friends and watch the behavior of the system, and if that's the case, then buy a more powerful processor.
Be careful when sorting through the system unit, be careful not to touch the parts of the PC unnecessarily.
For "pulling" startup programs, you can apply a special program. Use task Manager to view the load on the CPU.
Advice 3 : How to determine CPU usage
The computer user is sometimes faced with a situation when the computer starts to work too slowly. To determine this you first need to learn how to use processor resources.
There are several ways to determine the processor utilization. The easiest: open the task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del) in the bottom of the window you will see information about CPU usage.
It is sometimes useful to know what programs are CPU intensive. In task Manager there is a column "CPU" it displays the necessary data. If this row you don't have a menu task Manager, the tab "View" "Select columns". Put a tick in the line "CPU usage" and click "OK".
In many cases it is useful all the time to have information about CPU usage before my eyes. This can be done by using some programs – for example, the program "Everest" (aka "Aida 64"). This is one of the best programs, outstanding on the computer almost all possible information.
Install the program "Everest", then configure it. Click File – Settings. In the "General" tab, select "Load Everest at Windows startup". Uncheck "Show splash-screen at startup Everest". Place a checkmark in the box "Collapse Button minimizes the window to system tray" and "Close Button minimizes the window to system tray". There in menu "When you run Everest, select to Hide the main window (to hide in the system tray)". Click "OK".
In the system tray you will see a series of numbers, it's sensors, displaying fan voltage, CPU, HDD temperature, GPU and CPU. Double-click the mouse on any of them will open the settings window. In them you can remove unnecessary data and add the ones you need. To add a CPU check in the "CPU usage". Click the bottom button "setup", select the desired background color and text icons. Click "OK". The percentage CPU usage will appear in the system tray and will always be before your eyes.
To find out the CPU and get a lot of other useful information about the computer you can use the program AnVir Task Manager. The program displays system tray information about the CPU usage, disk load and memory usage. You will also be able to keep track of running processes and current connections to the Internet.
