Thread: Wavy window scrolling and suspicious cpu activity

  1. #1

    Default Wavy window scrolling and suspicious cpu activity

    Can anyone explain why window scrolling on my machine appears wavy and not continuous or smooth? Is it a video driver or a windowing issue or something else? I can live with it, but I'd rather not.

    Also, why does the usage on my es2200 dual-core CPU read 100% on one core and .3% on the other when all it's doing is idling (all but 2 processes are sleeping) with System Monitor running? That's not all that is strange going on: the movement of my mouse on the Resources screen is jerky. Can anyone explain this?

    By the way,there is no Internet activity, so does this indicate that my computer hasn't been "zombified" by a trojan?

    Hi
    Do you have beagle installed? If so it may be indexing, else maybe one
    of the maintenance cron jobs in /etc/cron.daily running.
