Very High CPU Usage

I am running SCE 2007 SP1. I have not imported any managment packs and this was a clean install.

However the CPU on the server where SCE 2007 is installed is running at 100% for approx 22 hours of the day. It rarely drops down below 40%. The server is running Windows Server 2003 SP2 with SQL 2005 Express. All Service Packs are installed

Any solutions out there to this problem. I have read some of the forums, applied hot fixes but the problem is just not going away

Hi,

If you open Task Manager, click on Processes, select the "Show processes from all users" and sort by CPU usage, what is the main process utilizing the CPU?

I have the same problem. Exept I already have Auto Discovery disabled. The SQLserver.exe rarely drops below 100%. It is a 6 month old build that I have updated with the latest MP's for AD, Citrix and IBM H/W.

Any idears?
