my friend is facing a weird problem, and he gave it to me to fix it. his laptop is a hp 2000 notebook with core i3 (not sure need to confirm). The problem was that when he used to run 'hitman: contracts' it would launch for the first 2-4 tries but after that a process namely
'rundll32.exe'(situated in sysWOW64 directory one) used to 100% the cpu and the game would start its process but wont launch.
i knew it was the problem of the windows game explorer and applied the fix. Now the game launches fine, but
explorer.exe races up and uses the left cpu and the cpu ALWAYS remains at 100%, more surprisingly the game doesnt lag at all even becoz of explorer monster..
