    hi,

    i just bought a new laptop that has windows 7 installed. it is sooooooo slow. its driving me crazy.
    from googling a problem could be too my processes. it has 100-120 running with a high cpu usage. mostly 90% or so.

    i have another laptop running windows vista with 117 processes but the cpu usage doesn't really go over 20%...

    what can i do?

    its a hp with windows 7 64 bit

    any ideas would be greatly appreciated :)

    Maybe you can find the process that's maxing out your CPU in Resource Monitor.

    Right click an empty spot on your taskbar.
    Click - Start Task Manager
    Click - the Performance tab
    Click - Resource Monitor (down near the bottom)
    Expand - the CPU bar

    That shows which processes are using the CPU. It also shows how much CPU power is being used for each process. Maybe that will show you what's going on.
