i'm running a brand new alienware dual core laptop with windows 7 home 7600.
It's been running great until today (feb 8th) i leave my laptop on and this morning it was running the usual.
After work i noticed on a few of my gadgets that my two processors are running at 100%.
Obviously everything is extremely slow.
I've been playing with msconfig and starting and shutting down processes and services and it seems nothing is working, i've checked to see what services are taking up the most usuage and it seems to be only showing my current process being google chrome, i have NOTHING running right now.
I've searched online and tried all of the quirks and solutions i've read, i've restored and even restored a full win7 backup i have on my external harddrive but i have no idea what is going on, it seems there was a critical update around noon today but i attempted to restore prior to it and still nothing.
Please help, i really need it windows 7 is still brand new to me, i've been an XP user for years.
