Laptop computers are notorious for doing that.

So don't worry, it usually drops down once the printer starts.

HP printers do that and just delete them and reinstall and only install what I really need for the printer. Look in task manager and see what is using the most processing power. maybe it is something entirely different, possibly even your anti virus. also if you need more help please tell us what os you are running and what printer it is. The members might also want a little more info on the laptop - ram, processor, etc.
