Alert For High CPU Usage?
My Internet Safety programme has shown an 'red' alert a couple of times saying - CPU usage is high. In addition - and I've no idea if it is connected, since I'm a computer dumbo - the computer has been freezing up. Then it is fine again for ages. Any ideas what is happening? Many thanks in advance for any advice!
You have one or more programs running that are using up the CPU processing time, so the computer end up in a frozen state. You can launch task manager, ctrl-alt-del keys, and under the applications tab, look for any apps that have a "not responding" note, then click the app in the list and select End Task. Or you can power off your computer for a few minutes and restart it. If the problem persists, you may want to uninstall the program causing the grief. You may also need more memory or RAM.
it could make your computer slow and may be you have too applications or tasks running on your computer so try to reduce them.
Probably one of the programs running on your computer is using 100% of the CPU becuase of heavy computations. If it does not happen too often, or if your computer's processor has 2 CPUs, there is no need for concern.

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
