    CPU usage

    I have a VB6 app that does a lot of processing 'behind the scenes'. The app is running, whether the interface is active or not. The amount of time it takes to process is not important, so I am looking for a way to try restrict CPU usage by the app. This needs to be restricted, otherwise there will be major slowdowns at certain intervals which users will not enjoy. Ideas?

    What you are looking for is the WMI Job Object Provider. I believe it was new in Win2K. Here are some resources for you,
