    Start your computer with your Win7 DVD, and use the option repair computer. Then Win7 fixes all broken, corrupted or missing files. It's my best bet.

    Click "Show processes from all users" to see what's chewing CPU time.

    I know a weird issue that can frig up WLM is problems with the display pic:

    Start > Run > type "regedit" and hit ok.
    In the registry editor, navigate to:

    Under "PerPassportSettings", you may have multiple entries with numbers representing each Live account you've logged in with. In each (or if you only have one), expand the numbered key and look for the string "UTL". delete the value within "UTL".

    Start WLM, and change your display pic immediately.

    ya, thanks everyone for the inputs. figured out that it was the kaspersky taking up all my CPU for unknown reason. i reinstalled the kaspersky and now it's running fine again!!
    thanks again everyone!!

    My previous computer is same as urs. Kaspersky is making my computer too lag. But then I decided to use MSE. It reports more viruses than KIS (KIS rarely pop up when I open infected files that are judged by MSE/AVG).
    anyway, you should upgrade ur machine, i don't believe kaspersky eats up 50% CPU on a powerful computer.
