What could cause the CPU usage to go up and the memory to stay the same

Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I have designed a program where I can take measurement values, however once installed on a client PC they have seen when they are using the program to take a reading the CPU usage goes to 80-100% and then back down and the memory will ramp up to 105,000K and most always stay the same. When I try it on my PC same program same PC specs i can never reproduce the issue.

Any Ideas?
