100% Usage

Hi All,

My cpu usage is showing 100% when im trying to play games. Anyone any ideas?
I have done 2 reinstalls and prob still persists
My spec is an Intel Core 2 DUO LGA775 E6600 2.40GHz Retail / Abit IP35-E / 2GB Corsair XMS2-6400C4 DDR2, Nvidia 8800GTS 320mb version and I'm running Windows Vista 32bit.

When I originaly built the comp it was fine nothing really made the comp to go over 30% usage. When I play games now they are all glitchy cos of the 100% usage. This happens in games from cs1.6 to BIOShock

Hi, hit Ctrl/Alt/Del then in Windows Task Manager have a look under the Processes tab and see what it is that is hogging your CPU - then post back here.
