    Ok so, I am a new member here, and I wasn't quite sure where to post this and it seems like this would be the best spot.
    My computer lately has been sitting at 100% CPU usage and it it gets like that directly after I start my machine up. I have always been pretty good with computers so after a horridly long reboot time I figured I should check my start up programs list and well, its pretty minimal. I use Speccy to keep an eye out for any flux's in heat on my motherboard and CPU but they both run in the green. This is what I'm looking at with specs.
    Operating System
    MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    CPU
    AMD Sempron 145 46 °C (temp)
    Sargas 45nm Technology
    RAM
    2.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 535MHz (7-7-7-20)
    Motherboard
    eMachines EL1352G (CPU 1) 46 °C (Temp)
    Graphics
    VA26LHDTV10T ([email protected])
    256MB GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (Acer Incorporated [ALI])
    Hard Drives
    488GB Western Digital WDC WD50 00AAKS-22V1A SCSI Disk Device (ATA)
    Optical Drives
    HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH60N SCSI CdRom Device
    Audio
    Realtek High Definition Audio

    My processes on the other hand go absolutely NUTS! I am currently running 97 processes and the one that generally takes up the most CPU is my Explorer.exe process so if you guys can give me a tip or 12 I would be forever grateful.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Chris.
