    The problem in Windows 7-CPU usage is abnormal, sometimes reach 100% when idle may be because this operating system uses a lot of graphic memory. The main problem is because of the built-in gadgets of this operating system. Also, there are such problems because of the themes. All these features causes the system to be slow. So, switching to the Aero theme and turning of those gadgets will solve the problem.

    I suggest you to optimize the system using the following tools:
    • TUNEUP UTILITIES
    • REGISTRY MECHANIC
    • SPEEDUP MY PC

    There may be many junk files in your system and the processor may be wasting the memory to keep the references of those files in your computer. So, running the above mentioned tools will remove all the errors and junk files from the system.
