Windows 7: CPU 100% and it sucks

15 Aug 2012   #11


A 32-bit Windows 7 runs just fine on that machine. It will not be fast, and it most certainly will be the worst gaming PC you have tried, but it runs.

My suggestions:- OR -
  • Uninstall all three antivirus programs you have now installed (Avast, AVG & McAfee). With McAfee do as WHS told you above, use MCPR.EXE to remove it. Other two you can just uninstall from Control Panel > Programs and Features
  • Download and install MSE
  • Using Msconfig.exe > Startup, remove all except Microsoft apps / programs / services from startup list

Until you run the Clean Reinstall I would immediately Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

Just replacing Muckafee and Avast with MSE and establishing a Clean Boot should make a big difference.
