    Hi

    Just a quick question regarding CPU usage. Basically Im wondering if its normal having 100% CPU usage when I open task manager.. It lasts not even a second before it drops but should it do this? CPU is an Athlon 64 4000+.

    Thanks

    CPU's often use 100% simply because they're doing something as fast as they can, you'll find with a slower processor it'd just do it slower. 'Tis perfectly normal, although I thought the same when I first saw it.

    Is it normal to have CPU percentage at 100% all the time? For me it is. :)

    I'm afraid my quad plays chess, which I find slightly more interesting than folding :eek:

    Thanks.
    If you ever get bored with chess or want to do something more useful with it just pop along to the dc forum and start a thread.
    I can assure you folding can be very interesting. :)
