Open the management console (Ctrl/Alt/Delete)

Choose 'Show All Processes'

Sort by CPU, and you will be able to see what is using the msot processor cycles.

You must loard too much application, them take up your CPU useage. It seens your computer runs slow, you should clean your registry.

You didn't say what kind of cpu you had. I had Vista with a 1.6 GHz cpu and from the event logs, my virus scanner was a problem and Windows Explorer as well. Also if you did an upgrade there may be a lot of files left on your system which can cause a problem. You have to be careful about their removal though and I'm still looking for straight answers about a lot of them. Also as someone mentioned in Vista you can check what is running when you start-up and if you don't need it as soon as you turn on your pc then disable it. Just start it when you need it.
