    Did you perform a clean install or did you upgrade from Vista?

    Use task manager to see what is taking up the CPU cycles. Right click on taskbar and select Task Manager. You can click the top of the CPU column to set the highest usage to the top. You can highlight any of the processes you want and watch what they are doing.

    some program called svchost.exe is taking up 500,000k of ram. then Windows media player network sharing service is taking up 705,000k is there a way to make them not just open up on thier own and start running with windows 7?
