    Cool High CPU usage!

    Have a stand alone PC only running and uploading a Weather Station and for some reason it has started "hanging" and note that the CPU usage is close to 100%.
    Any suggestions please on what is going on here?!
    Many thanks

    All those ftp exe's running wont be doing any favors to usage.
    One thing positive about Windows 10 is that there is never a dull moment anymore on ye olde computer

    Looks like the weather station software probably needs reloading

    Thanks and updated the Weather Display software and appears to have fixed the problem although the CPU still running over 60% which appears high.

    Can you see under process'es what is using the most CPU?

    I use a little utility called "procexp" to let me find out what is hogging resources. Also useful to 'kill' those stubborn
    processes that 'simply won't die'.
