When you see this on a cpu there are a few causes most of which are just really annoying. This is software caused by a program or programs
\015\012and your hardware itself is fine. Normally any system will be at 0-2% cpu when you are not doing anything.
\015\012
\015\012If you bring up task manager by hitting ctrl-alt-del then look at processes. Look at which is using the most cpu. It should be system idle or task manager. If you see something that is way up the for cpu then you can try stopping it by selecting it and then hit the end process button. If that is the culprit your system will instantly speed up. At the very worst you will cause your system to reboot so don't worry. If you do get the right one then do a search for the name to find out what it is. If it is a program uninstall or if it is a virus or malware then do a scan.
\015\012
\015\012If it just started try to remember what you installed last. Then uninstall that. You may have to do this in safe mode (hit F8 on boot up until you see the menu and select safe mode) to get the computer to cooperate enough to let you do this.
\015\012
\015\012Other causes can be anti-virus programs. If it just updated or you just installed this can be your problem. There are several out there that cause this exact problem and these are the well known good anti-virus programs. Again you need to uninstall the program. Download a new version if available or use a different one. We recommend one of the free ones like Avast home.
\015\012
\015\012The third thing is usually spyware. These are sort of dumb computer viruses so they quite happily keep down loading more and more until you can have hundreds running at the same time and your cpu is maxed out. To get rid of these you need to scan your computer for both viruese or malware(spyware). If you do not have a antivirus program installed then I would be pretty sure this is the problem. There are several online scans that will scan and fix your pc. Housecall is one of these.
