    Re: Windows 7- system using high CPU intermittently

    MS still hasn't fixed this? Simply amazing. Maybe someone should file a bug report.

    I've continued to apply my fix to all Windows 7 machines I set up and haven't had any issues.

    It's not necessarily FFDShow that's the problem- the random CPU spike occurs at any time, the video processing lag is just one annoying result. I installed WPT from the Windows 7 SDK so I could use...

    Re: Touching Monitors

    What's worse is when they touch the monitor and push on it too. My HP doesn't distort under pressure (IPS panel) so there aren't any signs of stress... at least I've always caught it in time.
