    Hi to fellow Mac users! Recently, I bought my first Mac, a C2D MBP 13"

    I really love the machine. But I'm experiencing this particular issue of having high cpu load of up to 80% while on W7 Professional bootcamp even though I'm not running any graphic intensive programs.

    Specs: 2.4Ghz MBP 13" (The recently refreshed model)
    Windows 7 Professional 32bit (MSDNA Edition)

    Upon successful installation of W7, I inserted the OS X disc inside and the bootcamp drivers installed successfully. So I'm quite sure the drivers are okay.

    Being a DotA lover, I installed WC3 on my bootcamp. However, I realise that whenenver I'm on windows mode, the machine is very laggy. I even have problem opening a browser when I alt tab out from WC3. Is this normal?

    even when idle, the cpu load on the processor jumps from 1% to 47% randomly. Just fluctuates randomly. I'm having a serious headache. I'm quite sure my Windows Security Essentials is not doing any scan btw

    Can anyone help me? :(

    You can run warcraft 3 natively on OS X with the same performance. Can't really help you much more than that, windows is quirky sometimes.

    First try to find out *what* causes the CPU load via Task-Manager (Show Processes from all users) or Resource Monitor. Then we may be able to help you. ;)

    i'm wondering if the problem lies with the MBP since my friends have no problem with the W7 professional from MSDNA running on bootcamp.
