Hi there,
I have a major problem with my laptop. My CPU is running on 100% when nothing is open, not a program or a folder, nothing. This happens after I leave the laptop for a few minutes idle. When I move the mouse afterwards the CPU goes strait to 0% and there is no time to open task manager and see what process is doing this. If I leave the task manager open the CPU will run normally. I had this same problem on my desktop, a few mounts ago and I resolved it but formating the pc. But my laptop is fresh formatted and I don't know what to do.
Please help

IF this is happening with almost every system you purchase, then its clearly some sort of software that you've been downloading on them.

Ive had this problem. run your desktop/laptop in safe mode then disable every program your pc starts up with. then enable them one by one. everytime you enable one, monitor your cpu usage before enabling another. by doing this you should easily be able to spot what software is causing your processor to hit 100%

I had the same problem, tried many things, superantispyware, malware bytes, safe mode and normal start, avast bootscan, normal scan to no avail. Finally I did a java update, java uninstall of obsolete levels, using the java.com site. I am not sure if it helped. But I then ran PCDecrapifer and removed some questionable programs. Then I ran WISE registry cleaner, Optimizer and then registry defrager. that worked.

My cpu usage, as shown on the Microsoft gadget is much more acceptable. the needle does not pin at 100% and hang up my browser.
