    I just read the thread from Jaxum dated June 17th "CPU Usage 100%" and I am having the same problem. The only difference is my CPU does not spike until I open explorer. The main consumer of my CPU is "system" and i can't shut it down. I have had my hard drive reformatted and it still happening. I have run virus software and spybot but neither has fixed the problem.

    I noticed that the problem always happens when my daughter is using my computer to play in her Webkinz forum. This is not the only thing that sets it off but seems to be the most reliable source.

    Hi there,

    I can think of two things that can cause that problem for you. the first would be add-ons in Internet Explorer. Open up Internet Options, and go through your add-ons and delete or disable the ones you do not use, or the ones that do not make any sense (not even real words or random numbers or letters).

    Next, go to "Run" and type "services.msc". Again, disable any services that you KNOW you do not need, and also any that do not make any sense. DO NOT disable any service that you are unsure of. Disabling certain services can cause your computer to have more issues.

    Hope this helps.
