    CPU @ 70% usage

    Clean install of win8 pro on half the HDD in my laptop (other is XP)
    Disk space 24G, processor 1.6m, ram 1G
    Had typical CPU usage of 10% until the addition of windows
    media center pack. Now usage is 70%. Culprit is "system interrupts"
    which runs at about 60%. Suggestions?
