What does it mean when I get a message on my computer that I have high CPU usage?


Forgive my ignorance on this, but do I need to be concerned about this and do something specifically to lower the CPU usage? Thank you for answering

    Wow, ChristinS, thank you for the detailed answer. I am clueless as to all of that, but I will check all of this out, as I am sure there is most likely a lot running in the background.

    Faith... Bravewarrior has another excellent suggestion. Regular Disk Cleanup and Defrags (but do not choose the condense files option) are great. I do this frequently and it helps keep everything tidier and with far less clutter.

    I use CCleaner, too. It's a good tool to keep on your desktop for easy access.
