Default 100% cpu usage....

I have a p4 2.4 using windows xp pro.

I have been playing a game, Diablo 2 exp.
Sometimes after running over periods of times everything start to slow down. I alt+tab it and hit alt+ctrl+del to look at my cpu usage and it is at 100%.
I then ran wc2, a game made in 1996 that requires like 32 mb ram to play it. I run it, sitting in a chat room, it still hsow 100% cpu usage. Everything is good when I exit the games.

Aloso, my case opeing is off on my tower, should I put that back on?
anyways, thanks for looking and thanks in advance for the advice you give me.

Meh, my computer has an AMD Athlon XP 1900. It always says 100% CPU usage on any game I play. However, nothing ever slows down. I don't really know what effects taking your panel off your case would do. Something involving airflow probally. It won't hurt.
