    Use Resource Monitor to see what it is.

    My guess is that you're using a poor antivirus or have never disabled Windows Search service.

    Or even more likely, related to Virtual Memory, because of only 2 GB RAM and x64 system.

    I had a similar prob with 8.1 Not 99%, but it was high and causing my machine to run hot. I found a site the recommended disabling windows backup, and it seems to do the trick.
