If you open Task Manager and on the processes tab press the "Show processes for all users" button you should be able to identify what is using your CPU. Post an image back here.

You have 2 GB of RAM and say you are using about 75% of it----1.5 GB.

That's not bad---I usually use at least 1.3 out of a total of 4 GB. That's what it's for---to be used.
