XP system task uses all CPU while copying files
Posted on 2008-10-18
I've asseblem a new (old) pc on basis of old hardware (AMD64 3500+, 1GB RAM) with a new board (ASUS A8V-VM SE). Widows installed is XP SP3. Problem: If I copy some files the system task in task manager eats up all available CPU ressources making the system incredibly slow. See attached process explorer screenschoot. Anybody a clue? My nex step is to install a Fedora dualboot to examine if its windows or the system...
In sysinternals process explorer I just see the system task taking all CPU but now, which driver or whatever is causing this.
I copy the files from an external USB disk to a local SATA disk, but its the same if I unzip a big file locally.
