Windows 7: Oversized usage of CPU (approx 10-25% on games)

Looks like this OSUL.exe does it. Do you have a program by that name. Look into your startup programs and if it is there, disable it.

Here is one that I found. But that may not be it. http://www.osul.com/

So it is the launchers of your games that use the CPU. I would think that is normal unless you want to stop the games.

i'm ingame in both of the games. 1 of them is just a menu i can click around on and the other 1 is just a player with nobody around / close to. basically it shouldn't even reach 5% at this stage.

+ the settings is to the lowest requirement as possible

But those are the launchers - maybe you can stop them in the startups.

Well, then I guess you are stuck with it. But it is not the end of the world. You have plenty of CPU power left.

If you get lages, there is something else wrong - maybe the GPU is too weak. The GT630 is not a barnstormer. See here.

With 75% of an i7 left, there should be no problem from this side.

these games doesn't really require much GPU usage. (not sure about runescape). but i know osu doesn't.. + i didn't have this issue when i got the pc. it's appeared after reinstall(s). so there should be something else to it.
