Open task manager's processes tab, sort by CPU usage, and see what is using CPU time.

AMD FX-8350 w/ Corsair H105, ASUS Sabertooth 990FX Gen3/R2, 8GiB G.SKILL DDR3-2133, XFX HD 7970 GHz Edition, 1TB Samsung 850 Evo, 256GB OCZ Vector, Creative X-Fi Titanium w/ Creative Gigaworks S750, SeaSonic X750, Corsair C70, HP ZR2440w, Win 7 Ult Ed x64

More than likely something like anti-virus software or possibly malware is running in the back ground and increasing the CPU usage. Add on gadgets have also been known to install improperly and while they work fine they constantly have excessive CPU usage. If you've installed any new programs or utilities lately that would be a prime candidiate for investigation in Task Manager. 


Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
