I have a HP Pavilion running Windows 7 Premium 64 bitI suffer with the CPU hitting the roof (max) I have reuced the programs installed to 4 in order not to put a load on the computer but still my CPU is high. I do not know how to reduce it as I do not know what programs need to run @ startup & that are required by the system. I have lost a few functions in the control panel so maybe I have removed a program I should not have done I no longer have a backup, I was going to wait until Windows 10 free down loads later this year. Maybe I should? nichandcar

Hello,

Try this 1

Hold the "Ctrl", "Shift" keys and press the "Esc" key. "Task Manager"

will be opened. Click on "Processes" tab. Under "CPU" column, let us

know the process which is taking a high CPU usage.

Good Luck

I have pinned it down to "mcshield.exe system 139,572K" followed by "svchost.exe system 134,588K"

Temporary disable your antivirus and let us know if you can see the difference.
Later, enable the antivirus.
Let us know your laptop configuration(Ex: Core 2 Duo along with RAM Size Ex: 4GB RAM) Or provide us your laptop complete model number.
Good Luck
