Jim replied to MagicAndre1981's topic in Windows Tips 'n' TweaksFantastic!!! My CPU was being dominated and one of my cores stayed maxed out ALL the time. Through your tutorial, I found Bonjour to be the culprit. I did not uninstall, but just deactivated at start-up. When I rebooted my Pavilion dv6000 laptop both cores were running consistently between 0-14% when idle - wonderful!! Prior to uninstalling Bonjour, I read another post explaining that Microsoft Security Essentials did not run well with other anti-virus programs. I began using Norton 360 and there may have been some conflicts there. I'm not sure which of these gave the biggest improvement, but I am thankful that you took the time to give these very handy step-by-step instructions. Thanks again - Jim
