Earn money by reviewing software products
Earning money online is not an easy task and most of the sites in this category are either fake or the rate of earning is very slow. In this article, I would share two websites with you which are genuine and you can earn money online just by reviewing software products on these sites. The software products which you use in your Office or at home, are the ones in which you get expertise and have a good experience in working on those software.

Fix 100% CPU Utilization in Windows 10/11

Fix 100% CPU Utilization in Windows 10 or 11
While using Windows OS, there are several processes which keep running in the background which use system resources, such as CPU and Memory. These processes cause system slowdown issues if not optimized properly. Usually Windows is smart enough to prioritize critical system processes to make sure that the OS is utilizing the hardware on an optimum level, but sometimes, due to 3rd party applications (such as antiviruses) and malware, some processes start utilizing the CPU at the maximum level and CPU utilization reaches 100% which slows down the overall system performance. In some cases, if the system is overheating or there is any hardware fault in CPU or system Fan, then also this kind of issue appears. I am sharing some of the steps which you can use to fix the issue.

1. Scan and restore corrupted system files using "System File Checker" utility

Before running this utility, make sure to run Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool by running this command in elevated cmd window: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

DISM uses Windows Update to provide the files that are required to fix corruptions. But if the OS is already broken and most of the components are not working in Windows, this command would not be so helpful.

After running the DISM command, in the same elevated command prompt window, run the following command sfc /scannow and press enter key. This command will scan all protected system files, and replace corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder at C:\Windows\System32\dllcache.

running DISM
sfc /scannow

2. Set the process priority to low, if it is utilizing too much CPU resource

Open task manager and check which process is using more CPU. Right click on the process and click on "Go to details" and then it would show up the actual exe file which is creating that process. Simply right click on the exe file name, then click on "Set Priority" and click "Low". This step would ensure that the process would be restricted from using maximum CPU resources.

set process priority to low

3. Install all pending Windows updates

Click on Start and then click on Settings. From there, open Windows updates and check for all the available updates (cumulative, feature updates and other optional updates) and install them. Once the updates are installed, restart the system and check for the CPU utilization.

update windows

4. Install all system drivers (including BIOS and Intel Turbo Boost Driver)

Open your system manufacturer's website and check for the downloads section. From the downloads section, download all the latest drivers for your system. Drivers include BIOS, VGA, Audio, Chipset, Dynamic Tuning Driver, Intel Turbo Boost driver etc. If your manufacturer provides any tool for auto update of drivers (such as HP Support Assistant, Dell Support Assistant, Lenovo Vantage etc), then use the tool to auto update the drivers to the latest version.
But I would personally recommend using IObit Driver Booster tool which checks for the best performing drivers for your device and auto downloads and installs them. I am personally using it and trust me, it is awesome.
Once the drivers are updated, restart the system and check the system performance. Make sure not to miss updating the BIOS to the latest version, because BIOS would usually require manual updation from manufacturer's website.

update drivers

5. Create a high performance power plan

Most of the times, due to balanced power plan of the OS, processor is not utilized properly by the system processes which cause malfunction with the processor and system processes. This causes incorrect CPU utilization. So it is recommended to create a high performance power plan and set it as default so that system could run with its maximum potential. To create a high performance power plan, follow the steps below:
> Open control panel and in the search bar, type power, and then click on "Choose a power plan" and set the power plan to "High Performance". If it is not available in your system, then click on "Create a Power Plan". Now select "High Performance" and type the name of your power plan (you may use any name, I used High Performance) and then click on Next and finish. Once you are done with creating the power plan, use it in power options. It should bring back the CPU utilization to normal.

choose a power plan
create power plan
create high performance power plan

6. Modify settings in registry

Before doing modifications in registry, make sure to take a backup of registry. Once you are done with the registry backup, navigate to this location in registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CurrentControlSet>Control>Session Manager>Memory Management and double click on "Clear Page File Shutdown" and change the value data to 1 and click OK. Then restart the system and check if the issue still persists.
clear page file in registry

7. Disable P2P Share for Windows Updates

To disable P2P share for Windows update, click on Start, then go to settings and open windows updates. Then click on "Advanced Options", then click on "Delivery Optimization" and then turn off "Allow downloads from other PCs".
disable P2P

8. Uninstall Sophos client or update it to the latest version

It has been observed that Sophos Endpoint client and other Sophos products are also causing 100% CPU utilization issue with several systems. If your system too has any Sophos client installed, try to remove it or update it the latest version and check if it helps. It is a known issue with Sophos and they are expected to fix it with their future updates.

9. Perform clean boot and run a complete virus scan using Malwarebytes anti malware utility

Malware and viruses are also a major reason of the 100% CPU utilization issue. If a computer is affected by any malware, sometimes it exploits the ntoskrnl.exe file, which is Windows NT Kernel and System file. Its process is visible in task manager with the name "System" and it uses maximum amount of CPU. Although, this file is exploited by some 3rd party applications as well which may be installed in the computer. So first of all, try running the system in clean boot mode and check if the issue is resolved. If it is not resolved, run a complete system scan with a good antivirus, such as Malwarebytes antimalware tool. It should fix the issue.
To perform clean boot, open msconfig.exe and then click on "Services". Then click on "Hide all Microsoft services" and then uncheck all the services except LAN, WLAN and Audio services, otherwise your internet would be disconnected and system audio will stop working. Then click on OK and restart your system.
clean boot

10. Factory Reset the OS/Reinstall Windows

If none of the above options worked, reinstall the OS or factory reset the OS and check if it fixes the problem. If it works, then update all the drivers and then install your applications one by one and check if the issue reappears after installing any specific driver or application. If the issue reappears after installing any specific application or driver, that would be the culprit. Uninstall it immediately.

11. Contact system manufacturer for hardware tests and part replacement

If the issue is not resolved even after OS reinstallation, then either system processor or the system fan is faulty which is causing overheating or processor malfunction. In some cases, I have observed that hard drive and memory also caused similar issues due to memory leak. So contact your system manufacturer and ask them to run hardware tests and replace motherboard along with the processor and fan. This would resolve the issue for sure.

Note: In some cases, it is observed that some systems using some specific models of TP Link routers also caused this issue and this was a known issue which is resolved. So if you find any user who has TP Link router which is very old and firmware is outdated, ask them to disconnect from the router and observe if the issue still remains the same.
Additionally, you can use tuneup utilities such as IObit Advanced System Care utility or any other good tuneup utility to optimize your system performance.

How to upgrade to Windows 11 on unsupported hardware without data loss

Windows 11
Windows 11 has been rolled out officially for all the users as a stable release on 5th Oct 2021. But many users are disappointed because Microsoft is not allowing them to upgrade to Windows 11 if their machines are not with latest hardware. To be able to use Windows 11, the machine should have 8th Gen or above processor, TPM 2.0 and secure boot enabled. Without these requirements, you would not be able to upgrade to Windows 11.

But there is a script that you can use to bypass the system check and easily upgrade to Windows 11 using the official ISO file of Windows 11. Make sure to disable windows defender before running the script otherwise it might not let the script run. Also, there is no harm in running the script and I already have personally tested it. Follow the steps given below to initiate the upgrade process:

1. Download Windows 11 ISO File from Microsoft's website. (
2. After downloading the ISO file, download the system check bypass script from this link: Bypass Script Link
3. After downloading the zip file, extract it and run the Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update_v2.cmd file as admin.
4. Once the script is done with the registry modification, open the Windows 10 ISO and run the setup. You would see that it would allow you to install Windows 11, however it would ask you to accept the risks that may state that the system might not get security updates on unsupported hardware. You may click on accept and forget about it, all the updates would be delivered to the device without any issues.
5. Now proceed towards the installation and choose the upgrade option. Windows 11 installation would begin and once it is done, your system would restart and you will be able to login to Windows 11 and use it without any problems.

Brave Browser : The Best Browser

Brave Browser : The Best Browser
In our day to day life, web browsers play a very important role which we don't even realize. From surfing internet to watching youtube videos, we use web browsers. Google chrome is the most popular web browser and majority of the internet users use this browser. But you might have heard a lot of complaints that Google Chrome uses maximum resources of the computer and if you open multiple tabs in it, is gets frozen or makes the PC very slow.

To overcome this problem, some companies tried to use the source code of Google Chrome and developed several Chromium based web browsers but they all couldn't do well. Even Microsoft used Chromium source code and enhanced its Edge browser which improved its performance a lot. But still it could not beat the best browser of all time, which is "Brave" browser.

Brave browser is made using chromium source code and in terms of speed and features, it is the best among all browsers. Not only this, you can earn BAT crypto tokens which you can transfer to your crypto wallets and sell it and cash it out. Isn't it cool getting free crypto tokens just by using your web browser for your in your day to day internet usage?


Following are some of the features of the brave browser:

  • In built adblocker which is very powerful in blocking youtube ads, web ads, search result ads and any kind of ads which may interrupt your web browsing experience.
  • As compared with the other browsers, Brave is 40% faster and it doesn't consume much amount of RAM even if you open multiple tabs.
  • It has very strict privacy features which protect you from being tracked and from malicious cookies.
  • For browsing websites, it rewards you with BAT crypto tokens.
  • You can use all chrome extensions in Brave browser.

I would definitely suggest you to install Brave browser and use it as I am personally using it from long time and it is surprisingly good. With the time, Brave browser keeps getting better and better, thanks to the amazing developer team.
