Windows 7: Processor working at maximum on desktop

Processor working at maximum on desktop

Hello, my windows 7 home premium, when it startup and the desktop appear, the processor was working at the maximum speed. I tried to restore the system, sometimes it works and sometimes not. When it works, when I restart it again the hang problem appear again. It seems like it has to do with windows update or certain program that I installed. I already disabled the "check windows update". But the windows still install the update for me, I think it's the old update that was downloaded.

How to solve this ? Thanks

I'd start off by running something like CCleaner to clean up your computer and registry, then see what programs are started on startup. You may have things like Skype WLM, Itunes etc loading on startup which maybe a reason.

P.s Welcome to Seven forums and thanks for helping me help you by filling out your system specs.

Win 7's built in Resource Monitor lets you monitor which processes and applications are consuming most system resources. You can keep an eye on your cpu usage, memory usage, disk status and network status.

1) Click Start button, type resmon in Start Search and hit enter.

2) On the main window, the Overview tab will be pre-selected. Here you will get an overview of the resource consumption. CPU, Disk, Network, and Memory are all there.

3) When you click on the CPU tab, it shows you Real-Time processes, CPU usage and Maximum frequency. On the right side, you can see a graphical representation of the same. If you want more details, you can look for related handles and modules.

4) Similarly Memory tab shows the memory consumption process wise, Disk tab gives details of disk activity, and so on.

Once you've gone through each tab, identify the programs that are consuming maximum resources. If they are set to start at startup, disable them in the Startup tab of MSCONFIG. Windows processes such as Indexing and Search can be trimmed/disabled. For 3rd party apps, try tweaking them or using alternatives.
