(WARNING: Mini-rant ahead - be prepared
I have been running Vista for almost a year now - I love it. IMO the best version of Windows ever (I still love Xubuntu more, but until Linux gets some up-to-date games, Windows is still #1).
Except for the fact that it will randomly just become a little b**** and take control of my CPU. audiodg.exe used to do this when I had my X-Fi 3D simulation on, so I disabled that. Now Windows Media Player does it randomly and I have to restart that. Now explorer has jumped on the bandwagon and is eating up to 85%+ CPU usage... and I am not even freaking using it!!! I am just sitting here, instant messaging, and all the sudden I drop to like 2FPS on DWM and the system just feels like it is a Toyota Corolla that drove into a swamp - it just won't do anything! After I get task manager open and "terminate" the "program" (I prefer to
... say other words, but that's another story), the system is just as speedy as ever. Repeat every 12 hours for full effect.
What the ... heck is Vista's issue? I am going to go and beat someone to a bloody pulp at Microsoft if this doesn't get taken care of soon!
Can someone provide a solution, or at least someone has to have the same issue as me? It happens only on this computer - my dad's Gateway laptop runs Vista like molasses, but it runs fine - the HP desktop won't install SP1, but it runs like a beauty...
