In Windows Task Manager the Performance tab shows the first CPU maxed out, the other 7 just idling along with the occasional spike. What gives?
More info: I've got 8GB and only 4.5GB are being used. The Processes tab has no indication of any process hogging processing power. In fact System Idle Process is 98-99.
When I program stuff and have like 8 to 12 applications going (several directly unrelated to programming of course) my computer slows to a crawl.
