That should not eat so much CPU. Check in Task Manager > Processes what's going on. Make sure you click on "Show processes from all users" and then set the CPU column so that the processes with high CPU usage show on top.

Hmm at 1st glance it looks normal, but what threw me off was your total commit size which is

33 GB?

Wow that is massive for your amount of RAM which is only 2 GBs.... Are your page file settings manual or Windows managed? A 30GB page file is kinda overkill for only 2GBs of RAM...

Commit limit includes reserved pages that haven't actually been allocated yet, but these pages have to be tracked (just in case they're called in to be allocated at some future time). While 33GB commit charge is a tad large, it's not impossible (heck, 100K of that could be allocated and ~32.9GB reserved and your commit charge will be 33GB). Still sounds like something fishy's going on though, and a thorough check for newer drivers and removing any running apps that include LSPs or kernel filter drivers (like 3rd party antivirus or firewall software, some CD/DVD burning utilities, etc) might want to also be removed as a test to see if it continues as well.

Stuttering and high CPU usage while downloading at high speeds
I've been having this problem now for an year or so now. It started when I upgraded my connection from 8/1 ADSL to 100/10 cable (so the problem wasn't noticeable even if it was there before) and when I download at high speeds (in steam, for example) my CPU usage jumps to 80% and higher, and my pc...

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...

Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!
Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this! I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine....
