Hi folks,windows vista's cpu has been runninmg at 100% for about an hour with windows explorer taking up to 51% and svchost.exe taking up the rest.Any idea what can be causing this?Theres no other programs running.Thanks.

First thing to check is Taskmanager:

Right click the Taskbar and choose from there.

See what's running (could be a defrag in the background)

Then if no joy there:

Start > run > msconfig >statup

To see whats running there.

Post back.
