CPU "core" test ?
is there a way to test an Intel core 2 CPU to see if it is working the way it should. i do not know if there are 2 physical cores, or if its a virtual 2 cores. a while back i was playing minecraft, and in the middle of the game it slowed down abruptly, and it has been extremely slow every since. its an Intel core 2 6300 running @ 1.86Ghz (stock). i KNOW how dated this thing is, but this is the speed that i have become accustomed to. i do not spend time on anything fast, on purpose. not that i wouldn't like to be "supersonic". its just not in the budget yet. the only other game i play is solitare. and my old Radio Shack Tandy 1000 could likely take care of that. i have run anti virus, anti spyware, and advanced system care trying to see if that would fix it. but no go.
