  2. I'm slightly confused here. The CPU graph always goes up to 100% on the Y
    axis, but your CPU is clearly bumping along quite happily at around 20%,
    apart from that one spike up to 80%.

    Or have I misunderstood your question?

    Dump Registry Mechanic

    Using a registry cleaner can lead to more problems than it solves.

    Once you have used a registry cleaner there is no way to know whether it
    has damaged the registry.

    What the hell are you talking about!?

    There is NO mention of either a registry cleaner OR Registry Mechanic
    in this thread.

    You cut and paste to the wrong group/thread??

    You have way to much free time on your hands. Next time you wanna
    take a thread off into left field, give a reason.

    My comment was directed to looi76. As long as it had meaning to him that is
    what counts. I cannot help it if you fail to fully read the information you

    Didn't seen any information regarding hardware so this answer may not b
    applicable - did see the screenshot graph image on the Vista64 pos
    though.

    DL - your reply that the graph shows 10-15% isn't quiet correct. Th
    question is, "CPU Maximum Frequency always 100%". The 10-16% reflect
    the actual CPU usage. If you look to the right of the CPU title bar o
    the graph you'll see the 100% Maximum Frequency is pegged full blue
    100%. The blue line in the graph window doesn't show very well becaus
    it's running at the top of the graph. If you look at the graph whe
    Resource Monitor is first opened, you'll see the blue line climb fro
    0-100 across the graph as it scrolls through the polling cycle.

    It took me awhile to find the answer but here's a couple of links tha
    offer good explanations:

    'Welcome to The Metaverse : Vista power management & CPU frequency
    (http://tinyurl.com/4xyy35)

    'Different ways to determine CPU speed in Windows XP or in Window
    Server 2003' (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888282)


    The Maximum Frequency is used primarily in laptop/notebook/tablet/et
    systems that may be run off battery only power. The power managemen
    configuration on modern devices allows the system to throttle the CPU
    literally reduce its operating speed. Slowing the speed down reduces th
    energy consumption to extend battery life but will decrease operatin
    performance as the CPU will take longer to execute commands.

    If your system doesn't utilize a battery source, then the powe
    management (if it even exists on non-battery systems) should have Ma
    CPU set to 100% for all power profiles (as the system is running o
    constant a/c power) and, therefore, the Resource Monitor will alway
    show Maximum Frequency at 100%.

    I started researching this issue due to Event ID 7 in my Vista lapto
    that indicated the CPU was being externally restricted but all of th
    web searches only showed people who had the same problem/question but n
    answer.

    respectfully,

    - me
