Windows 7: windows 7, high cpu usage, more then xp?

Windows 8 64 bit PRO

Have you downloaded any codecs ?
This can always affect performance of your playback content.
DId you make any changes inside Catalyst Control Center (AMD/ATI CCC)

Though admittedly you may want to have a look at chris1neji's sugestion first.
Though I believe that is somewhat negated by the issue appearing in vlc , which doesn't use the system codecs.
