cpu usage on windows

This isn't strictly a .NET question, but this seems to be the best forum for a windows-related technical question.

I'm running a process on a remote server that takes 99% of the CPU on my laptop, but seems capped at 25% on the remote server.  I'm wondering if there is some setting on the remote server that sets an upper CPU limit for any one process? 

I promise that I did google around for this, and I found a related question, but unfortunately, no answer.  If anyone knows, I would greatly appreciate some direction on this one.

Does the remote server have 4 CPUS?

no, just a single cpu.  I don't know the full configuration, since I didn't set it up, but it's a pretty standard windows machine, 2gb memory I think.

it has to be a combination of dual cores and/or hyper-threading so that the server is acting like it has 4 cpus. Then your process will max out one of those "cpus" leaving the rest idle for a total cpu workload of 25%

+1 for quadcore or dual-core with hyperthreading.  That has to be it.

MS has some new multi-core processing extensions coming out...may still be in Beta at this time.

You guys are right!  I talked to the sys admin, and it turns out that there are multiple cpus on that machine.  So I was mistaken about the single processor.  That explains it.
