cpu usage

Hello, can you help me please, i have just been checking my cpu usage in the task manager and it looks very weird, every 20 secs or so it shoots up to 100% usage and that lasts for about 20 secs, then goes back down to 1 or 2%, i looked at which processes were using so much and found that it was "devices exe" i should say that i was'nt doing anything with the pc at the time, it was just on the desktop screen ? be much obliged if you could shed some light.

i will agree with rdave13 if you have Driver Max downloaded go into msconfig and stop it running at start up.

Just did the msconfig and i could'nt find drivermax in the startup menu, how about if i just uninstall it ?
