Hi guys,

Am ususally pretty techy but can't fathom this one. My laptop is constantly above 50% cpu usage and the fan is constantly on and it's (constantly) hot! So task manager says 50%+ usage in performance, but in processes there is virtually nothing using the cpu. I've ordered it by cpu usage and it's using about 5%!

What's going on??

Thanks.

Vista business on HP 6730s. 50%+ usage from start up.

try starting up in safe mode see if its the same, also run malwarebytes from there.

Upgrade your Operating System to the latest version, Windows 7 in your case.

Run anti-malware software to remove any maware which maybe running.

Try re-installing the OS.

Move to Linux.

Buy a better CPU.

Will try that, thanks!

I've used malwarebytes on it maybe a month or two ago anyway, will use it again.

Alot of expense most of that to fix a silly issue which has only just started and shouldn't be happening!

Daft as it may sound, once you have Task Manager started, you have clicked "Show processes from all users"?.
Apologies if you have but that will reveal a few more processes.....
I'm running win 7 64bit and have 52 processes, rarely exceed 54 but it's a tight ship most of the time :)

The genius of the day award goes to boydent999!!!

Clicking all users processes showed there to be something like PTNetworkUpdate or something, killed it and back to normal!

Change Cpu and update to Win 7, pffffft!!!!

Dust on the processor, clear your vents out with compressed air.

I'd not go that far just lots of experience of, "when computers go bad" :)
Glad it's sorted

I guess in future I shouldn't take what you describe as gospel and instead assume stupidity. Sorry I tried to help you with your problem by giving suggestions.
