Im trying to speed a laptop up a bit for a relative. Ive run ccleaner on it and checked for virus's etc with ms security essentials, hijackthis and malwarebytes. They removed a few minor things but its still slow. Cpu is at 100% constantly which im guessing is showing a problem, but what?

Download

Process explorer

Extract and launch it as administrator

You should be able to see the process that uses 100 % cpu usage.

Or just open task manager to the Processes tab if you don't want to use 3rd party software.

Checked more indepth with the processes running and it turned out to be itunes causing it. I uninstalled it and its back down to the normal few percent during idle. Not sure why it was doing it though, thanksvfor the help.
