No, there is not a way to make apps use less CPU, without telling Windows to use less cores.

Could you please post a screenshot of the Processes tab of Task Manager, when the CPU usage goes up so high? Be sure to sort the list by CPU, in the middle column.

should it occur again I suggest you read, Having CPU usage problems? Read...

also with firefox and other programs that may allow importing of plugins and such I would check your expansions/plugins/addons to the applications first.

i suggest using a different software then corel dvd as it may not be the most efficient program. also if u are using the program to create a dvd u are most likely converting video formats and depending on the format of conversion the codec encoder is set to use all cores to convert as fast as u can
