Question:

CPU usage has gone to 100% burnout!

When displaying Presentations shw full screen, I notice that CPU usage is constantly at 100% using XP. (Not sure on other OSs. This is not the case with other similar programs. I used my laptop for several days at a function, and also had a AVI video loaded in memory ready to play. When I took the laptop in under warranty because I had trouble starting it (Acer 529ATX P3 900Mhz) they discovered CPU damage. I can only surmise that running the CPU at 100%, as well as playing an AVI video (switching using ALT-TAB) could have contributed to the damage? I can not think of anything else that pushes the CPU so hard.

    Looks like you are victimized by the old version of an virus called sasser worm and it affects a process similar to lsass.exe but with an extra character in the name. The 60 second countdown is an indicator to the type of worm. A virus scan can detect and name it and should be sufficient to clear it

    Thanks. I should have indicated I am still using Presentations 9. Does this mean this problem has been eliminated for Presentations version 10? Regards, John Classic IT Support Computers, Components and Software classic-it.com.au"

    I am running a slide show right now in XP and ALT TABbed back to Netscape here.  Task manager says that PRWIN10.exe is at 00% - 01% running a show to transitions every 2 seconds.

    When Presentations is displaying full screen, I then ALT-TAB to Windows XP Task Manager, and the graph form for CPU Usage and CPU Usage History goes up to 100% and stays there until I press Esc when it then reverts Presentations back to editing mode.

    I have just downloaded the 170Mb WordPerfect Office 2002. nd in testing Presentations, I'm surprised that the same issue of 100% CPU utilisation is there, even if the presentation only has one slide with text only. The CPU runs at 100% during QuickPlay or Play Slide Show! This does not really make sense. The system I'm running v10 on is Abit TH7 Raid, P4 1.7Ghz, 1Gb Rambus - and it doesn't explain why it also runs at 100% on the laptop. When I run PowerPoint 2000 and PowerPoint XP, CPU utilisation is very low as I would have expected. I would really like some technical feedback on this.

    Well, PR9 has been out for like 3 years now and this is the first I have heard it. Joell Please reply only to the newsgroup.

    No, the issue of 100% cpu utilisation while running Presentations 9 still persists on the laptop with the new mainboard and CPU,  as well I have tested it on my desktop P4 1.7Ghz system. It also runs at 100% CPU (ALT-TAB to Task Manager in XP Pro and Home edition)! This occurs when I choose QuickPlay or Play Slide Show. I'm quite happy to upgrade to V10 if the problem there is solved - but I should think that 100% cpu utilisation when simply displaying a slide with text only indicates a serious programming looping error of some kind.

    Well... I run United Devices peer to peer computing which runs in unusedprocessor space so mine is always at 100% .. but, when I shut it down then other programs pick up the slack.  Click back to the processes pageand note the % there while running.  PR9 runs between 20 and 80 when running a show. Now, unless someone comes along that actually knows what he/she is <br /> talking about (which I don't) then I'm afraid I am not much help.  :-( Joell Please reply only to the newsgroup.You stop believing in Santa Claus is when you start getting clothes for Christmas Presentations FAQ, Tips & Church Music Resources 3.telus.net/jhaugan/presentations" target="_blank" Digital Photo Conversion

    Well.... I guess I should remember which Newsgroup I am in! :-) I did a little test in PR9 too... and, interestingly, PR10 does not let me run simultaneous programs while a show is playing (at least on screen) while PR9 does (I could run the task manager while the show was running).  However, the numbers never reached 100% they did go higher. And, if I use the "fade" transition (very pretty but very labour intensive) I could push it to 90% once in a while.. but that's all. <br /> <br />Joell Please reply only to the newsgroup.

    Have you considered the possibility that the 100% usage was a symptom of
    the processor beginning to fail and not the cause?
