Hello there, i have got my hands on my friend's laptop (hp 2000 notebook with i3 core pretty old..).
i found a game on it namely- hitman contracts which is an old game (i think of ~2004).
It used to work fine, with ignorable lag, but when i opened it for ~4 time the game would not open instead a rundll32.exe would eat up the 100% of the cpu. I knew it was because of windows games explorer and fixed the thing. Now the game is working fine but i looked for the cpu usage, and surprisingly it was full 100%, the cpu was racing, the explorer.exe would occupy the remaining space, and now it gets wierder, the game wouldn't freeze or even lag during the explorer monster..
Can anyone give me the steps to fix this?
Thanks, (also sorry for bad english)
