I turned my pc on the other day and tried to go into a program that was on my desktop.Clicked the icon and nothing happened .Pulled up Task Manager and noticed I was running 100% cpu usage.I didnt have anything else running at the time so I dont understand why I was? Hopefully someone can lend a hand here because I am wreckin my brain trying to figure this out! Thx in advance :)

Might be some kind of automatic update. You might try going to Start>run... type in msconfig

Go to the Startup tab of System Configuration Utility and uncheck anything that you suspect might be running some kind of automatic update.

You will be required to restart your computer and when it does, you will be prompted with a message... just put a check mark in the box so msconfig won't run again at start up. You might have to do this a few times until you find out which program is doing it.
