Windows 7: Setting up an processor alert

Setting up an processor alert

How would I go about setting up an alert that sends me a message for whenever the % processor time counter goes above 60%? and how can I make it so an entry is recorded in the application event log?

I am having issues with this as well. I have used perfmon to set up a data collector set (alert type) that should check if the processor usage is over 60% and I have checked the box to have it automatically log an event in the application event log. I turn it on and then run a program that is designed to eat up the CPU to test it (and I can see from the Task Manager that the CPU is in fact going over 60%), but when I open Event Viewer, no events seem to have been logged. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your help.
