Windows 7: Have 61 processes running and getting performance spikes. Please Help!

Have 61 processes running and getting performance spikes. Please Help!

Recently when ever I'm playing games or running programs, they suddenly spike up to 100% cpu usage and start lagging very badly.They normally run fine and quite smoothly but then after a while, they suddenly stop working.

It usually stops if i leave them alone for some time or if i close the program, but i don't think the application itself has anything to do with it.This happens on many different games and applications alike, but normally only with games, even old ones.

I checked my processes and it says i have 61-65 processes running! Isn't this too high? how can i check if those processes are OK? I have HijackThis and can post a log file if needed. Please help me out.

You can do a couple of things, first download gamebooster Game Booster 3.0 Free Download, Speed Up PC for Top Gaming Performance which will automatically stop some processes when you start a game. Also visit BlackVipers web site where you will see detailed instructions on what services you can safely do without.
