Could you be more specific as to which process exactly is sucking all the processor?

When the cpu usage is up at 100%, open the task manager (ctrl + alt + del) and find out what process is using up the biggest percent of the cpu, and let us know. Also, when you connect the cable lan are you shutting off the wifi? I doubt if that matters, but what the heck.

Dear syem,
A hearty welcome to windows seven forum!


As RobbieR detailed, 1)open the Task manager, 2)open "Processes"3) click on "processes"tab, so that they arrange themselves in a descending order (see my snapshot below) of usage and post the top 5 culprits and 4) you must do this (naturellement) with the cable connection!

The needle of suspicion points to browsers like Firefox, especially when the connectivity is good as is with the cable! Boy, that fox has a fire in the belly!

regards,
Sreedhav

Pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL in Windows 7 does not open Task Manager. It opens a switch user / lock computer screen. In this screen you then have to click Start Task Manager:

You can also start Task Manager by right clicking an empty spot on Taskbar, then selecting Start Task Manager from context menu.

A small error there. Open Processes tab, click column title Memory:

using 100 %-windows-task-manager_2011-03-22_14-18-54.png

Now make a screenshot and post it here.

Dear kari,
Such are the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune! I stand corrected! As you said, rt.clicking in an empty space in the task bar is my method of choice!It's so cool and the sum of such small utilities have made Win.7 a giant success.

Thanks,
Sreedhav

CTRL+Shift+Esc. Thats what i use for windows 7.

It may go upto 100% for a short time, i think it will jump back to normal. Did you checked for sufficient time?

I would consider a full scan using MalwareBytes.

The fact that your system is using so much when hard connected to the net may be a sign of infection and is worth checking out.
