Poor CPU in Windows 7

Hello Everybody, i have recently installed windows 7 Ultimate x64, i have noticed that when i do a simple task such as open IE the CPU usage jumps to 30 - 40 %, I feel that this is not right. Does anybodyhave any suggestions or advice regarding this subject?.


PC specs: AMD Phenom II X4 940 processor 3.00 GHZ. RAM: 4GB

does your motherboard properly support 125 watt cpu.
Are your motherboard drivers all upto date.
Is your cpu fan nice and clean I ask this because if the fan is clogged with dust the cpu will work less efficiently.
Also was this an upgrade or clean install.
I would also run a full virus and malware scan just in case.
I run an phenom 2 810 with 4 gig and win 7 home premium and at present I have 5 tabs open in firefox,music playing and downloading an iso and my cpu usage is at 2-3%.
Please could you supply your full system specs and possibly a screen shot of your running processes.

If the jump is short enough, e.g. several seconds, then it's normal. It can also be caused by a security system's realtime protection.
