I don't know what happened with my laptop...All of a sudden it started torturing me like hell..takes too much time to open a application or to run something from start menu and even it is taking time if I tried to open a folder.. Somehow I figured it out that it was a CPU issue as the usage of it was always between 80-100%. Could you please tell me how to bring it back to 7-10% or to the minimum usage level.

P.S I scanned my laptop with Adware nad fsecure just to make sure whether my laptop is infected with any virus or not. But nothing showed up..

Please let me know what needs to be done here...

Thanks.

It seems there may be a virus or Trojan activity in the background,the virus may be eating up the CPU and disallows other applications to run on the machine....try Kaspersky it will give you a 30 day trial so dnload it and run a full scan on the system once virus and trojan is ruled out..check the taskmanager and check which application so eating up lots of cpu space...after you ruled out the software OS issues then probably you can turn to the hardware ,how old is the system ???

Try running scan with Microsoft PC Security. I think they also have removal tools there.

Like other said...it's kind of Virus that hit your PC/LAPTOP!! Try checking with Microsoft Security as they have updated virus databases and fix it. Else I would strongly recommend you to restore from backup or re-install OS!!

Did you try running task manager with viewing of both system and user tasks enabled? You can sort by CPU column and find out which process is taking up all your CPU. I have seen antivirus programs do this, it may be SSD management activity if you have an SSD, or even something like IE or Explorer doing something unusual.  Also, does this activity continue indefinitely or does the machine CPU usage settle down after 10 minutes (for example)?
