No I'm not angry. Why would I be angry. Take your time.
Just trying to help you by starting from square one.

This problem happens with any kind of games. From old quest/adventure games to new. I use uTorrent and I download them from a local peer-to-peer website.

From post #12,

I use uTorrent and I download them from a local peer-to-peer website.
That could be your problem.
Sorry I never use a torrent so I'm done.
The only thing I know about a torrent is it's one of the best ways of getting infected.

Have a nice day.

We can't help with pirated software so Torrents make some of us queasy, but I realize there is freeware available via Torrents.

It's also real easy to get infected so your AV may be kicking into high gear, which can be observed by ordering Processes from highest to lowest in Task Manager after including all Users. Try MSE to see if this eases.

Start with the malware scans, SFC, establish a Clean boot, troubleshoot with Process Explorer, then work through all of the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

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....
