I have a problem with cmd.exe

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Every time I run a program or a game there is a program launching as well that eats up my processor power( it keeps it up to 100%). If I switch to the task manager and close everything is fine but next I launch something that program runs again.

I have reinstalled my windows XP SP 2 with a full format and that process still appears every time.

Help me please.

I have a problem with cmd.exe


Hello GheoTeo,

When my Windows XP reaches 100% Central Processing Unit(CPU) usage, I start having problem with my computer speed. It eats up my processor and it’s a slow process response. It’s getting worse and worse every time I launch one application.

This is caused by Virus and Trojan. The application has Malware infections that every time you launch this application, it will show CUP 100% usage. It’s a slow crawl and mouse pointer logs delayed response.

You have to identify what application using large memory usage.

Go to Windows Task Manager, CTRL+ALT+DEL then Click on Processes Tab

Identify which has large number of memory usage. Disabled the application but make sure you are sure what this program is, do some research about the application. And lastly, this is cause by Virus and Trojan horse. Clean up your hard drive by doing a reformat but an also, an updated Antivirus software might help.

You have a problem with your file CMD.EXE, this file is infected with a virus. You have to scan it with an updated antivirus software. I suggest you use Avast Antivirus. It will give you 100% protection. You can download this software.

I hope this software will protect your computer.

It is normal for the CPU usage to reach one hundred percent (100%) when playing a game so this is not a problem actually. But if running normal programs like Microsoft Office Word gets your CPU that high then it is not normal because applications like Microsoft Office Word barely use the processor. In this case, try scanning your computer for possible virus infection.

Download Sophos Virus Removal Tool and install it. Once installed, start Sophos then wait for the virus signature database to get updated. When updating is complete, click to start scanning your computer. The tool scans everything on your machine including external devices connected via USB port.

When a virus is found at the end of the scan, remove or delete it then repeat the scan over and over until it no longer detects a virus. See if this works. If the problem continues, try updating your operating system to the latest Service Pack. Since you’re on Windows XP, download Windows XP Service Pack 3.

This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows XP.
