CPU usage is high

I am continually getting warned by Norton that the CPU usage is high on at least one of the CPU's. I have a Compaq laptop with a 64 bit system and 4gb of memory. Although I do manipulate photos, it is not to a massive extent and I upload vidoes to youtube but not every day. I also get warnings when I am just emailing or surfing.

Has anyone got an idea of what is happening? The system is not two years old yet.

Go into Task Manager to see what is using up the CPU.

If nothing running System idle Process should be showing about 97% and that is normal.

Anything else using up a lot of the CPU let us know what.
