Windows 7: Idle System RAM/CPU Usage

21 Feb 2010   #11

XP, Vista, W7 64bit Home Premium

Open Control Panel - Backup and Restore - Create a system repair disk - it will fit on a 700 mb CD - this is more or less the same as what comes with the W7 install DVD - and can be used if your system fails altogether - you would have to insert your other backup DVD's with the system image - i know it works as I've read the tutorial on ZDNET - I'll try to find the link and post back.
