nothing running, 100% cpu usage

By jemd ·
I keep running into the situation that my system seems bogged down so I open Task Manager. I see no processes running (except TM) but I have 100% cpu usage. What is doing this and how can I turn it off? I have a suspicion about indexing running in the background?

Task Manager shows nothing?

In TM on the processes tab when you sort by CPU usage you see nothing but 0's?

Hardware issue?

It could be a hardware issue. Is the HD peforming a lot of read/writes? Try reseating your memory, or replace it if you have spares. Run a chkdsk on the HD and see if it comes up with anything.

It might be a corrupt driver. Have you tried booting it in Safe Mode?
