Sorry, i know there are many threads like this . Specs: Intel Dual Core, 2 gigs RAM, Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 Gs, 1gig mem for graphics, uses 1900x1280 resolution, 32bit Windows 7 Ultimate Just installed windows 7 today (installed all proper drivers from nvidia site for graphics driver) and is maxing out my CPU while running various programs (each individually). IE7 is one of them. Only programs that have been added are CCCP Media Player Classic (currently uninstalled), Winrar, and a theme. Any help would be appreciated. (No virus' on the computer). Also when playing some videos sound would not happen (probably due to maxed CPU), when on XP (till today) i would be able to run firefox without passing 10% CPU, heh not sure what is wrong.
