I've seen a few threads about similiar problems, however I think mine differs a little from the rest that's why I opened my own thread.
Here's the deal: My cpu usage jumps to 100% when I do usual actions like page refreshing, starting windows media player, starting task manager and so on. On the other hand when I'm watching let's say youtube it's on 4%-20%.
Windows 7 professional 32bit
2GB of RAM DDR2
dual core 2ghz processor
Nvidia Geforce 7600 GT
According to microsoft my pc meets the requirements so I thought it might be the graphic card, I asked about it in graph card section and seems that should be enough as well.
I'm gonna guess the first question you will ask is what processes use most of the cpu, and the answer is the ones I actually use at the time (i.e. I refresh google chrome page chrome.exe uses a bunch of cpu.
This wouldn't be much of a problem but I play some video games as well that don't require much (warcraft 3 for example) and there this high cpu usage causes trouble.
I hope someone can help me thanks in advance I'll be checking daily so if anyone needs additional information just ask.
