CPU load

Hey there
I have a new PC see below
Win7
i5-2400 4x3.1GHz
16GB DDR3 RAM
Z68 mobo
Intel 510 series 120GB SSD as C-drive, tests at over 300MB/sec

Check out my CPU graph below.
Average of all the cores is about 28% with virtuall nothing running, just Outlook (miminised).
Is my CPU loaded more than it should be or what???!?

You cannont figure out the effective CPU utilization in this way...

You need to make sure what are other system services running in order to analysize your CPU utilization..

The good and simple start to doing this is... open your task manager > process and sort it out by memory untilization > so you could see the process that are utilizing more memory..

Ensure that the top 5 process are legitimate... if not terminate them and stop the corrsponding service...

I have seen the latest firefox and dns client does utilize the more memory after certion period they run... I believe it is due to memory leaks... This is common...

Let me know if you need further assistance...

You can also use the sysinternal tools (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb545021), more precisely the Process Explorer.
This will split out the task from taskmanager, and will allow you to see what is running underneath the svchost processes and such.

You would be surprised what is loaded on new PCs and set by default to run in the background - task manager will reveal what is running, and I'll bet it's an antivirus scanner.

If you push the "Show processes from all users" button, the numbers should add up.  I see 11% cpu usage, but only 5% is listed.
