My CPU is being throttled. I have no idea why or by what app, but when I fire up CoreTemp32.exe it shows my CPU at 100% and my frequency at 999 MHz. I have a Dual Core 2.3 GHz. My coworkers have the same laptop as I do and their frequency is at normal levels (up in the 2 GHz area).
This issue is causing my computer to max out in CPU and to run DOG SLOW!
I have already tried uninstalling everything that I could think of that was installed near when this started happening.
I looked at my BIOS and the only option about throttling was SpeedStep. I have that enabled, and the BIOS setting says that turning it off will set the CPU at the lowest possible performance setting.
I have anti virus stuff running and am fairly sure I don't have a virus. I have also gone through my AutoRuns to see if anything looks suspicious.
I am stumped. Any Ideas on how to get my cpu back up to normal speeds would be welcome.
