For as far as I can remember I have always seen that on my Windows ME system. All tools that indicate global CPU usage say 100% and when I look with TaskInfo 98 or Process Explorer the idle process uses 97-99% usually.

Fair enough, but I never got permanent 100% CPU usage indications anywhere until the thumbnail viewer was installed. :no:

Neither do I. BTW, my patched SYSMON may interest you, although it'll not solve your issue. Note that the Win ME version works OK on 98SE, and that's the one I'm presently using.

Thanks den.

I've downloaded and installed it.

Is there any reason to use the ME version instead of the 98SE version?

:)

To have the most up-to-date code-base available. I think it's worth it, but that's just my opinion. :yes:

I've installed the ME version now, and as you say it seems to be absolutely fine.

Thanks.

:thumbup

Now I hope Tihiy can find some reason for the apparent 100% CPU usage when his thumbnail program is operating!

You haven't provided any proof there is a problem. I can't trust sysmon which is often starts giving high CPU usage. If you say problem is apparent, then prove me how do you notice high CPU load - is there sluggishness or problems with multi-tasking or sound playing or what?

Tihiy, I've never noticed the issues decribed in Q227131 with the Win ME SYSMON, which I use on a daily basis for year already, and which is the one Dave-H is presently using.

This has nothing to do with sysmon version, really. It's a bug in performance measurement in 9x. Every application which uses registry CPU usage data can suffer from this.

Hi Tihiy,

No, there is no proof that there is an actual problem.

As I said before, the responsiveness of the system seems to be unaffected, which is why I think it likely that the 100% CPU usage indication is an error in the monitoring programs.

However, it never happened until I installed the thumbnail viewer, and it returns to normal if the viewer is disabled, which is why I thought it worth bringing it to your attention for investigation.

Thanks for the pointer to the MS KB article.

Cheers, Dave.

:)

Can you add the button "Pause process" ?
No, i can't since those programs are not developed anymore. But when could it be useful?

As far as Im aware there is no default 'Network' icon, only a Dail-Up/modem icon

However If you have 2 network cards it may be annoying to have 2 icons at the bottom, so yeah, can you add the option to hide the icon from systray but have it in..., how about Network Settings.

Another feature I think would be good for it wpuld be to either dissapear or give indication when a network is unplugged/unavailable. Sometimes my network is offline or I unplugg the cable yet the icon stays. Then when its replugged can it have the same balloon tip as your VPN (and modem possibly) icon in RP7 - of which would be another thing to add to RP9... I like it...

Hi! I've Hi! I've just installed GDI+ thumbnails and I realized that when I change the view to "Thumbnails" I can't see the windows like "an web page". Is there a solution to this? I have the Spanish version of 98SE.

I attach the images of what I mean.

It should be like that.

Windows 98, 95, NT etc don't treat ethernet-type connections as 'connections', like Windows 2000 and upwards do. There is a 'network' icon I believe in the control panel which is where you configure the ethernet 'connection'. It's a complete pain in the proverbial to setup and when you're used to the simplicity of how Windows 2000 and up deals with 'connections' it can create quite a headache.

I only need a hot key for renaming file/dir

Alt-R would be nice :)

Well, I looked at the CPU usage in Windows System Monitor, and that says 100% too!

So it's only Process Explorer which is saying that it's only 4-5%.

Cool Beans System Info and Sysmon both say 100%.

Maybe PE uses different criteria to measure it?

Incidentally, WinTop also says that "Idle" is using nearly all of the CPU, as does Process Explorer.

I think that System Monitor actually mesures free CPU, then substract the value from 100% and displays it. This CPU usage value includes ring 0 programs (kernel, drivers), while WinTop and other tools measure CPU usage of programs, ring 0 not included.

If you have put the gdiplus.dll file into your windows\system folder, all you should need to do it type "regsvr32 gdipthms.dll" (without the quote marks) into the "run" box and hit "OK".

It that what you're doing?
