How to fix 100% CPU Usage - Windows 7?

Specs:

Computer: Dell XPS 8300
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64x
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4 GHz {NOT 2600k}
RAM: 32 GB
HDD: 1 TB
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6450

Note: I do run a Minecraft Server on this computer. The server has 20GB of RAM deticated towards the server.

Basically I just need to know how to reduce the CPU usage because the server I run always errors such as, "Can't keep up! Did the system time change, or is the server overloaded?". I feel the reason I get those messages is simply due to the fact that my processor is really getting bogged down, which I can tell by the 100% CPU Usage. Please help!

It would help to know what process is using your CPU time?

Well I belive a big component of why the CPU usage is so unbearably high, could simply due to the fact that I am running a Minecraft Server off of 20GB of Ram. Do you think that would have anything to do with it? If not, I can tell every process that is going on that makes the CPU usage so large.

Just sort by CPU usage; odds are one or two processes are responsable for the CPU usage.

It quite probably is minecraft. It can happen when you make too large a change using worldedit. But I thought Bukkit was still single threaded. Then again you might be running a vanilla minecraft server, which I believe is multithreaded. I would still check your processes to see what's happening.

Yes, I am running on bukkit. Obviously the big thing eating up the CPU Usage is the java in which ranges from 60-90. There is a another server that has no problems and they are running it on the same system. Does this help? By the way thank you all for your input.
