    Hello and thanks for reading. I am having a problem with my laptop that started a bit over a week ago. The CPU usage is very high, most of the time. I have tried a variety of things from updates to Windows and drivers, to security scans from various programs, yet the problem remains.

    Basic info:
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, 32 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6570 @ 2.10GHz, x64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 1912 Mb
    Graphics Card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family, 828 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 230364 MB, Free - 114501 MB;
    Motherboard: TOSHIBA, NBWAA
    Antivirus: None

    I uninstalled MSE earlier to see if that was the cause, but it was not, hence no antivirus protection.

    Additionally, I installed Process Explorer to have a better idea of the cause. A large part that takes up much of the CPU is the svchost.exe-taskeng.exe-NDSTray.exe-CFSwMgr.exe process.

    I can easily post a HiJack this log or screen caps of Task Manager or Process Explorer, if this helps you analyze the issue.

    Once again, thanks for reading. I look forward to solving this with your help :)

    You can try what Microsoft calls a Clean Boot
    At this Address you will find the instruction.

    You can also go to Start - Run - msconfig - OK
    To stop some processes from starting.
    Anyway try the Clean Boot.
