The process does not have an ".EXE" at the end


The "System" process would spike all the way to 100% CPU usage so fast that windows task manger does not record it it records it at a max of 70% and every time it spikes my computer will lag for about .8 seconds (even happens with the mouse). I scanned with Avira Antivir personal (A.K.A Free) and found nothing. Also when I restart my computer the problem goes away until i play a video or sound clip. The spikes happen about every 3-8 seconds. See the Variation in this picturePosted Image

See if you can identify what is running under System and using all the CPU?
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
