    When I startup now my computer is going super slow. The first thing I did was go to msconfig and disable all the programs and let the required ones start on their own. It still went slow, so when I checked the task monitor I noticed that the cpu usage is fluctuating alot even when im not doing anything. two pictures are attached one where the computer is just idle the cpu usage goes from 13% to 80% the second is what the CPU looks like when opening paint which it gets maxed out at 100 %. So time for a new comp ??

    Jeez you suck at posting pics.

    Try watching the Processes tab to see which proc is eating the cpu up.

    maybe your computer is having trouble processing the huge screenshots you are taking.

    most likely some kind of garbage app running in the background, spyware or the like. get adaware or something like that.

    take a screen shot of the processes tab, that will be far more useful.

    I bet it is due to Micro$ux and one of their updates. I've seen a number of people with the same symptoms and this solution fixed it for them.

    Try this fix:
    Start, Run, cmd
    net stop wuauserv
    rmdir c:\windows\softwaredistribution /s
    net start wuauserv

    Reboot.

    You should go now from ~100%CPU usage on startup to a normal PC again.

    run Process Explorer (www.microsoft.com) turn on CPU history for the columns shown. play around and you will see what individual processes are stealing CPU when
