My sister has a new eMachine T-5880. It is running incredibly slow. it has Windows Vista installed. When I checked the performance tab in Task Manager I found that the CPU usage was nearly 100%. When I checked to see which process was hogging the cpu I found that the tmproxy.exe process was using in excess of 90% of the processor capacity. It is my understanding that this process is required for essential applications to work properly. Can anyone tell me what this is and how I can prevent it from hogging the cpu?
