bring up your task manager, go to processes tab, and sort by CPU. That will tell you which app is thrashing the processor.

Image name: System Idle Process
CPU: jumps from 70 to 95 (40 to 49 when wmpnetwk.exe is on)
Memory: 24K
Description: Percentage of time the processor is Idle

Image name: wmpnetwk.exe
CPU: 50
Memory: 16,460K
Description: Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service.

I end process the wmpnetwk but it still comes back even though I don't have WMP running. What can I do?

My CPU is now running above 50% and hasn't gone higher then 80%

try the following:

1. In Windows Media Player turn off media sharing

in the library tab right click on it > click "media sharing" unclick the media sharing tab and click ok

2. Turn off the "WMPnetwk.exe" service
Under the "RUN" command in the start meni type "services.msc"
Scroll down to "Windows media player network sharing"
Double click and under startup type set to disabled
