Suddenly I noticed that my pc is using really high cpu usage with no reason. I noticed that the task manager always indicates a process that consumes cpu resources (always above 70%), once I close it another process starts and does so . What is that and how to solve it?

MY PC Specs:
RAM: 2GB DDR2
MOBO: Gigabyte G41
Processor : Core2Duo

Is that Process "Conhost" by nay chance? You have iTunes installed? iTunes uses a lot of CPU power. So do apps that control streaming media - Like Hobbyist's VCLC Streamer, which streams VLC movies from your PC to your iphone. While rendering a movie for streaming, it will peg out your CPU until it is done.

But ya gotta tell us, which process.

use msconfig go into the start up tab turn every thing off there...other then your anti virus. then reboot and run malwarebytes anti malware to see if you have some spyware. if you have an old anti virus think of uninstalling it and use free mse/avast/avg.
