In Response To High CPU Usage Message

Updated on December 24, 2015

The Windows Systems


Get Familiar With Your Computer System

A computer system usually comes with a manual that explains the software installed on the system. Many of the programs installed on it are self-explanatory as well. Many times when you get a CPU message it means that you need to clean out cookies and delete unnecessary files that are taking up memory. The more memory that the system has then the more room and faster speed the operating system has. You can do this yourself by being familiar with the system's capabilities. Unfortunately, most users do not take enough time to get familiar with operating the entire system. You must always have a firewall activated.

Take It To Computer Repair Shop

If you are not as computer savvy then when you get CPU messages and do not know what to do then you should take your computer, laptop, or notebook to a computer repair shop that will clean your system up. It may get worse if you do not know how to complete a clean up. Sometimes, they can clean it up without recovering your system. Recovering means wiping out programs installed on the computer and giving it a new face and fresh start. Anything that was saved in your processor will be wipe out. It may have a virus or viruses. Computer repair stores usually have the necessary tools to get the job done. They also can tell you how to prevent problems.

Update and Clean It Up Regularly

To maintain your computer operating system you must allow it to update and clean regularly. Some systems do both automatically and some must be done manually. If you are not too familiar with operating then it is best to purchase a system that does the maintaining automatically. Many times on manual computers there are updates that appear. They ask you to click like something meaning"OK" and you click to download. If you do not feel it is a safe site then close the message window all together. I am not sure as to which Windows computers do it automatically but Mac computers seldom has updates.

A Good Virus and Spyware Protector

Every day experts are improving software to better protect computers. There are companies that will call you are notice via your computer that you have foreign matter on your computer and if you allow them to they can take control of your computer and knock out the problems and add better protection against viruses, spyware and etc. The problem is I don't know who is legitimate.

      THnaks for defining this message alert. It's good to know just in case it pops up in the future. I have a good program that regularly cleans out my disc, etc. and that saves me a lot of time and worry.

      I'm annoyed at how the operating system of my laptop automatically gives me alerts on updates. Now I know the importance of it. I do hope tho that I could learn a bit more on how to manually clean and update it myself. Thanks for the tips. :)

      Yes Faith, You are welcomed, Be sure to come back and hear the song added, "Space Age" the time of computers and technology. There are still people especially, the older generation that refuses to use computers, but don't you think computers make life a little easier? We should try to get more familiar with them, phones and etc. It's normal for the kids now a days. Technology is something that we should not ignore.
