    I am using windows 7 ( 64 bit )

    my cpu usage is now 100 % and memory usage is almost near to 2 GB..

    I installed Avast months back. .

    now i have newly installed Microsoft Security Essentials ..

    1) when i try to uninstall Avast there is no uninstall option even in Add/Remove program it does not show up in list.

    2) When i try to end process of Avast it shows me message ."Access Denied " although i am administrator
    and only single user

    3) What i want just to keep my CPU Usage down ( almost 5 to 10 % Max )
    because i have not installed any thing to use CPU usage like 100 %

    I have visual 2008 with Sqlserver 2005 and office 2007, like these

    please help me to make my system proper as i used to have...

    Having two anti-virus installed will cause problems, so first try uninstalling Avast using the utility here: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

    If that doesn't help your CPU usage, look in Task Manager to see if a process is using a lot of CPU time. FWIW I have Visual Studio Pro 2010 and noticed sqlwriter and sqlserver consuming lots of CPU so I disabled them in Services.msc since I don't use them.

    resmon will give you a better overall view of what is using what. Just click start orb and type resmon and run the resmon.exe.
