CPU usage spikes (100%) and windows lags terribly
I have a Dell inspiron e1505. 2 gb RAM.
Essentially I am getting seemingly random spikes in my cpu usage where it ramps up to 100% and windows basically freezes for an extended period of time. Sometimes I simply have 1 google chrome tab open with no other apps actively running in the foreground and I get these cpu spikes. I just did a clean install of windows 7 to try and eradicate this and it persists. I am at a loss as to what the problem is. What is odd is even though the cpu usage spikes at 100% my available memory is almost always nearly around 50% still. So I am just not sure what is happening.
Here is a link to another forum where someone else was trying to help (unfortunately to no avail) High CPU usage, programs crashing, windows hanging - Tech Support Forum
Anyway like I said I eventually just did a clean install but the problem persists. Since the clean install I have not noticed and flash problems with chrome (as per the tech support forum thread) just random cpu spikes.
Any help is much appreciated
