My CPU's are spiking from 20% (Normal) to 50 to 70% in Task Manager for "Flash Player". When they spike, my game WGT Golf, is unplayable.

I am running no other programs and I clear my cache every day. Here is my sysinfo...

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD C-50 Processor, AMD64 Family 20 Model 1 Stepping 0
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 2662 Mb
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6250 Graphics, 384 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 291225 MB, Free - 254832 MB;
Motherboard: TOSHIBA, Portable PC
Antivirus: Norton Security Suite, Disabled for game play only

What could be causing the CPU's to spike for no reason? What can I do to bring them back to normal while playing my game?:confused:

I assume "WGT Golf" is a Flash based game. Have you tried updating Flash?

Yes. I clear the "Cache", disable "Automatic Updates", and do a "Disc Cleanup" every day.

You appear to be running Windows 7 64-bit in that Toshiba laptop with only 3 GB of RAM.
Considering you use it for gaming, you should add more RAM or max it out.

What's the model name and complete model number of that laptop?
The complete model number will be 2 sets of characters separated by a dash.
Example: L123-S4567

I'm sorry but I can't read the model number (Worn off). How do I add ram?
Go here.

Agree to the terms and conditions, then run the Crucial System Scanner (CrucialScan.exe).

When the scan is finished, a report will appear in a separate webpage.

Copy and paste the address here so we can view the report.

Note: Here is an example of what a report and its address looks like:
