Do you have the correct drivers?

I've got a SpeedLink USB modem and every time I connect then for the first minute or two mine also uses 100% CPU then drops back to normal. I'm using the latest drivers. I emailed the support site but they never got back to me (possibly because I sent them an email previously, mildly criticising the fact that the software they supply with it is full of spyware). I'll be interested in a solution although in my case it's only a minor problem.

maybe spyware is activated when you log on to the net which lags your cpu. Just an idea. Use spybot and adaware.

I use them daily so it's not in my case.
