Your temps look good. I don't THINK, at this point it's hardware. You should definitely follow through with what Carl is telling you... to the t.

Alright, I've got all of those uninstalled. I even uninstalled Symantec just to see and have installed MSE. I will report back if it still occurs.

Sad to say, but it is still doing it. Here is the latest snapshot of task manager.

It was sitting at around 5-10% and then it when up to 100% out of nowhere. I don't know if you noticed but audiodg.exe is always a contributor to a lot of CPU usage and I don't have anything enabled in the audio settings.

You'll need to post the whole process list in two or more snips.

How does it perform when you do a clean boot using MSconfig? Bring it down to a bare minimum and see how it idles for awhile.

ClearFire,

This will probably fix your problem:
UPDATING YOUR WIN 7
ASSURE THAT YOU RECEIVE ALL UPDATES
WIN | type WINDOWS UPDATE | ENTER |
Change settings (left-hand column) |
checkmark all four of the boxes | OK
button

Approve any dialog boxes presented. Let Windows install any update features.

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

INSTALL CRITICAL UPDATES
Check for Updates
(left-hand column)
Install ALL critical updates.
Restart your computer (even if not prompted)

Repeat this procedure until there are no more critical updates.

DO NOT TRUST the “Windows is up to date” in center of dialog. until you see that TWICE IN A ROW!

INSTALL IMPORTANT UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all important updates are installed.

INSTALL OPTIONAL UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all optional updates are installed.

Under Optional updates you will be presented with a list of about 34 language updates.
You can hide those updates so that aren't continually notified of those updates. When you click on 34 optional updates are available, then you
a) highlight all of the language updates,
b) right-click anywhere in the highlighted list.
c) click on Hide Updates,
d) OK button.


UPDATE GOLDEN RULES

Install ALL, yes, ALL updates.
This is Win 7 and not Vista or XP (eXPired).

UPDATE IS HUNG –TAKING FOREVER
Hung is very doubtful unless you interrupted updates.

CTRL + SHIFT + ESC key combo will pop-up the Task Manager.
Lo and behold, Windows Update is still running!

You hold down the CTRL and SHIFT keys.
While holding them down, tap the ESC key once.
========================================

Now don't go thinking that you are smarter than Microsoft. This is not eXPired.

Install each and every update using the procedure given.

Sorry for the delay... It hasn't happen for a couple days now and I think it may have been solved. Thanks karlsnooks for the solution and to everyone for helping.
