SSUPDATE consuming all CPU resources

Recommended Posts

Running SAS PRo on an XP machine.

When SAS opens, SSUPDATE uses all the CPU resources. Then SUPERANTISPYWARE starts using resources and it just stays there with SSUPDATE using 50% and SUPERANTISPYWARE using 50%.

I've done a SAS Repair -- it made no difference.

What's going on here? I installed SAS about 5 months ago without any problem.

thanks

It may not be SAS's fault. If I bring up IE, IE uses 100% CPU. Same with Safari. However, Firefox runs OK. I also saw yesterday that AOL and Google Toolbar would take up all the CPU. I've removed the Google toolbar.

It seems that if something comes up that wants Internet access, it stops and uses all CPU.

However, Firefox works and Avira is updating.

So what did you expect ? :lol::lol: Sorry - couldn't resist :mrgreen:

I would suggest going to the Processes and figuring out the process that is taking up most of the CPU time. It may be some process that is being called for each of these applications - though top of my head I cannot figure out what it can be. And be sure to view processes for all users.
