12.5% says you are fully utilising one of 8 cores.
Fully utilising a core for no reason suggests a Windows problem, but it might be easier to first uninstall Adobe and see it that helps SW.
John thank you,
We are part of a larger company B/E Aerospace. Their IT department pushes out group policy updates every so often. When I put a repair ticket in it stopped as soon as it started. About 2 weeks ago to get everyone to keep their work on the local server if you opened a file from your local drive they had done some thing to make it crawl so slow it was horrible. As soon as you move it to the server it would run at normal speeds.
So I am chalking this one up to something they done.. It was odd it was using 12.5% of the processor. I have seen adobe, and Adobe text extractor used this precise amount of the processor.
I use a little program called Process Explorer and I can see what is running and using the processor. With it you can right click on a process and kill it if you don;t want it running.
