The processes tab can also show CPU% used by each process.

Thank you guys, it looks all OK now. When I checked this morning everything seems fine, it must have been a minor glitch. Thanks again for the help.

wmpnetwk cpu issue

I have same sort of problem, but i can see what is causing the problem - wmpnetwk.exe - i assume that is windows media player networking for streaming? I usually network with my other pc's through my server? If i turn it off it starts back again. I guess i can turn services for it off, but will it make my network drives unavailable?
Thanks for help.
I'm an XP guy can ya tell - lol

Yes it is, and no it will not disable your network - it is *strictly* for sharing and searching for shared media, that's all.

Stuttering and high CPU usage while downloading at high speeds
I've been having this problem now for an year or so now.

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....
