win 7 ultimate cpu usage issues

Hey guys,

I recently installed win 7 ultimate on my notebook..
it has a performace score of 3.4, core 2 duo processor 4 gb ram ect. I havent installed much onto it, its still fresh and my problem is that right off the bat the cpu usuage is at 50 percent and ram at 85, thats with no programs running. I am well above the minimun requirement so did I do something wrong? Should i have a diff version of 7 such as home prem? also, if i connect to the pc through my 360, then the cpu usage is at 100 percent and I can not do anything else. please advise

could you provide a screen shot of your process list in task manager? maybe a few of them, one sorted for highest mem and one for highest cpu useage. and a second set for when the 360 connects.

Also while the 360 is connected does the 100% CPU happen all the time or just when your streaming(video,music, pictures).

Click on "show processes from all users" without anything running show the processes tab, sorted by memory (click Memory, under the tabs but above the process list)

Could you do that again but re-sort the memory section so we can see what is using the most memory? The current view is showing what's using the least amount...
