CPU Usage stays at 100%

Hi, my CPU usage always stays at 100% while I browse the web, I've ended all of the useless processes such as
PowerISO, Canon my printer, One Note etc....



Any advice will be appreciated

Try using Task Manager, hold down alt+control and press delete. select task manager, click the processes tab and press the CPU tab. Maybe it will tell you what is using your CPU.

Does CPU usage stay at 100% when you open Task Manager?

Can you post a screen print of Task Manager ordered by CPU descending?
Make sure you have "Show processes from all users" checked.

You have 87 processes running, and that's a lot.

Can you post a screen print showing the Processes, ordered by CPU descending.
Make sure you have "Show processes from all users" checked.
Here is a screen print showing this.
