Hi,
If it only spikes on startup say so
Otherwise just keep referring to resource monitor to see what is causing it
I've been using RealTemp to monitor temperature
If they go up you know something is going on
RealTemp just shows a temperature # on the taskbar so it's easy to see at a glance
Download Real Temp 3.70 | techPowerUp

Okay well I have another thing for you as well. In the update programs it has updates if you want them or not. Well it has skype on there but when I open add and remove features it is not in there. The same with microsoft essentials yet there is an update for both. What is that all about?

Hi,
Skype is a windows update as far as I know I have never actually installed

You might have to delete what ever extracted files and try again
Right click the zip folder and select Extract all and point it to extract to the downloads folder should be the same place you downloaded it too
Then just open the folder
Everything should look like the image I posted.

!SASCore service running all the time, not running Superantispyware?
Found the the above service was running all the time and I only occasionally use SuperSpyware AntiSpyware as a standalone scan. This is solely as backup check to my Antimalwarebytes Pro. May I stop and disable it, and how would I remove it entirely? Thanks Glenn
