I seem to be having major issues with my "upgrade" to Windows 7 64bit from Vista 64bit. I have the full licensed copy of Windows 7 and chose to do the "upgrade" due to having important documents I did not want to lose. I believe that was my first mistake. I "upgraded" Sunday the 8th of Nov.
My issues are with my processor. Before the "upgrade" I never had any issues with my processor running really hard but since Sunday it has yet to stop unless I reboot. After a while it starts back up again. The processor is a quad core Phenom as the title states and according to TM all four cores are pegged and running around 70-80% without any processes running.
I sorted the CPU usage through TM to view the most usage and there were small amounts %5 or less. The "System Idle" was ranging from %80-98 and the CPU Usage was ranging from %70-90 at the same time. To me, that does not make sense. Would anyone enlighten me as to what could be going on?
