Here on my Windows 7 laptop it weighs in at 40000K and more. Nothing seems wrong here. That's always what its been.
It sits at about 12000K if not on internet and leaps to sometimes over that
I use Fierefox and it also has increased usage to sometimes over 200,000 K and makes mouse pointer and response jumpy and hap hazard.
This all started a few weeks ago after a "critical windows update that also took out my built in mouse pad though the external ones work
I can use the pad on the laptop to click on the log on icon that appears on the screen when I first turn it on but not after
Tried to do a system restore but it tells me I have errors on my disc that I need to repair and the repair didn't work and says everything is fine .
If this is a windows thing would it be simplest to just reinstall the W7 program and start over
