This morning, I decided I might fire up Guild Wars for a couple of Alliance Battle rounds.

I then found that I was having many problems concerning lag. I checked all my connections, even resetting my router and modem when I found that the problem was client side. My side.

When I fired up task manager, I came across this:

I'm only running 33 processes and my CPU is maxed out when idling. That's extremely strange. Usually, my CPU only uses 7 to 14% when idling. Could anyone help me fix this?

It isn't what programs are installed on your computer but what programs are running and drawing resources.

Click start/run, type in msconfig and click "ok".
Click the start menu tab.

If you can't figure out what the programs are that are listed download and run Startup Inspector from :
