CPU usage

Postby Geekgirl » Thu Jul 15, 2004 10:04 pm

Im having a huge brain fart :lol:
..... but where do you monitor the CPU usage in Windows 98SE?
I know in XP you hit control/alt/del and view under performance.

Some help? :)

If its installed....98 had a "resource meter" or something along those lines in System Tools,through the start menu.Its been a while since i've been on a 98 machine so it may be called something else.If its not there you should be able to install it from a 98 cd in add/remove windows componets.

Im not too sure but would it be right click My Computer, Properties. Performance? That would bring you to system resources, virtual memory etc. Daniel

If it's not in Start / Programs / Acc. / System Tools then:
Control Panel / Add/Remove Prog. / Windows Setup / Double Click "System Tools" and add it.

That tells me how much of my system resourses are free. Is that what your referring to?
I was hoping I would get the little graph like XP or at least something simular.

What? "System Monitor" is what you want. Then Hit the Add button or Edit/Add and Add Category: Kernel Then Item: Processor Usage%
