Is there any software tool I can download and use to find out which process during windows startup occupy CPU 100% and keeps it that way.
I know it has to do something with my DVD RW drive. When I disconnect power and IDE cable from the drive computer runs normally. When I connect drive, windows is very slow and Performance monitor (Task manager) shows 100 % CPu usage.

How to find out what is the trouble process or service?

Thanks

What about a Dual core CPU that shows near 100% on first and only about 5% on second?

Send a message via Yahoo to sobeit

you should be able to look in your process and see exactly which process are running when your cpu hits 100 percent. If you are not sure what the exact process is, you can post it here or do a google search.
