Windows 7: CPU Usage - 100%

Windows 7
CPU Usage - 100%

Hello all, my CPU usage claims to be at 100% whenever I exit a game, it feels like my computer thinks the game is still running, thus causing my computer to run slower in desktop. This is very annoying, whenever I exit a game I just restart my computer to fix the problem. Any help is appreciated, and I've noticed I'm not the only one with this type of problem.
