  • To find what is causing your computer to use more CPU than it normally does you need to run this. 

    Open a CMD prompt with administrative rights (right click it>run as admin) and run this command for 60 secs to capture the high cpu usage: 

    xperf -on latency -stackwalk profile -buffersize 1024 -MaxFile 256 -FileMode Circular && timeout -1 && xperf -d cpuusage.etl

    The trace will run and give you a warning then revert to a C:\ prompt

    The log will be in C:\windows\system32.  It should be called cpuusage.etl

    Please zip the file and upload it to skydrive (or another file sharing service) and put a link to it in your next post.
