System interrupts is taking up to 15% of my overall CPU. Which means that for a single thread its taking up to 40% of that part of the CPU, getting large frame drops for minimum requirement games. I'm on a clean install of windows 7 installed last christmas. I've done comprehensive malware scans, ran diskcheck, checked for registery problems, ran DPC latency checker, and I still don't have a clue what could be causing it.

You can either download and install or run live Autoruns for Windows to find what is causing the problem.

I ran autoruns and disabled entries with a yellow highlight since they are empty entries. I don't know where to go from here to diagnose my issue. Not seeing a way to filter it by CPU usage or system interrupts. 

Edit: I am currently installing windows performance toolkit so I'll report back with anything I find.
