High CPU Usage

So, I'm continuing a troubleshooting thread that led into CPU problems in the CPU Section. Original Thread can be found here... Computer Locks up while downloading

Specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6750 @2.66Ghz (OC'd to 2.72GHz, first OC for me)
Asus P5E-VM HDMI mobo
6 gb Ram (2gb Patriot DDR2-6400, 4gb Ballistix DDR2-6400)
GeForce 9500 GT (1gb DDR2)
80gb Maxtor HDD (installing a 1tb Seagate Constellation ES tomorrow)

My CPU usage when using Flash Player ranges from 50-100%. I can't have more than one 1 other tab open. The culprit is Flash Player, as well as plugin container for firefox or Chrome. I haven't tried IE, but thats because I hate the way it runs and looks.

Any suggestions?

  4. Make sure your flash plugin is up to date. That's about the only option you have.

    He was helpful. Flash was a resource hog on my core 2 duo. But that was a year ago and I've since built an entirely new machine.

    But there's always one pant pissing simpleton that posts in a year old solved thread.

    Do us a favor and learn some proper forum Etiquette.
