    Hi Pkaji & canouna,

    Thanks for the Response -

    However - Its not because of Virus as I was using ESET with daily update ...... and its been just couple of days i have installed Windows 7 ...

    Another thing which you have suggested is format and reinstall i did that too as mentioned by me in my first post.

    I am Sorry that its post came in wrong sub form ... ( MODETATOR - Kindly suggest if this can be moved to Windows 7 Sub Form.)

    Thanking you in advance/.....

    Also waiting for the soloution for the problem.

    Regards,
    Lovemeet Singh

    Use taskmgr to see what process consumes that much of cpu time and ram as well. It might be a virus of a poorly coded app with mem-leaks... and so on

    go to the task/processes tab, show all tasks and see what file or files are using the most CPU time except "System Idle". That will tell you what file or program is using the most of your CPU. My guess it that file will be also using the most RAM also. It is probably a virus but if you can locate the file in memory and shut it down you can safely delete it without reformatting. Try that first dude. It can save you a lot of trouble later if you do so you don't have to reformat.

    I suspect that if you still have problem with 100% CPU usage even after formatting then it might be due to your antivirus or some other program installed. Can you check if your CPU usage is still 100% before installing any program.

    I'm going to take a guess and most of the time mine are rather good lol...
    I'd say that since you have nailed almost everything out that you have windows media player network thing running...
    I think its somethign like wmpnetwork.exe or something close to that...
    I hope this helps...

    This process has been known to take up a fair amount of the cpu almost to a ridiculous level...
    Another reason why I use winamp...

    Play around with the perfomance options and select "best performance" (I hope you no where to find).

    Maybe the combination CPU/GPU is not powerfull enough to support all Windows 7 visuals.

    Update the Graphics Card Drivers to the latest. (what card do you have?)

    Regards,
    Applegate.

    Wow this is one of those ooo I didn't think of that but yea I advise you upgrade your ram to 2 GB at least and 4GB if you can...
    Yes I did just have a stupid moment Sam lol...But I stand by my thing that it may be the windows media player network thing as well...

    I totally agree there too. I disable that as soon as I install win7 just because it is annoying and uses RAM that I don't need running lol.
