splintax Posted January 17, 2006 Report Share Posted January 17, 2006 Hey all,No idea what would be a better place to post this (yeah, I know it's not a µT-related problem).I'm having some problems with a PC here at work - as the subject says, while one of the printers is printing (an old Canon BJC-1000SP) the System process is chewing up around 99% CPU. This effectively means that we have to wait for each print job to complete before starting a new one, which is a real pain when we have to print out 5 or 6 reports that are all 2 pages or so long (especially since it's not exactly a fast printer).First, does anybody have any ideas on how to fix it? I'm thinking it's probably a driver issue of some sort, so I'm gonna try and update those (if there are any updates available). Other than that, could someone explain to me what exactly the System process does? What does it handle that Windows doesn't do with a seperate process (for example, if this is to do with print spooling, why isn't it done by printspl.exe or something)?Thanks in advance for any help..splintax Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
