Laptop always has a cpu of 70-100%

So, going down the list with some problems on my laptop, I always have a cpu of 100%. I checked Processes on the Task Manager and it showed that a program called scvhost.exe was the first thing that popped up with a whopping 160,000 K of memory. When I selected that process and went to see which service it was, it showed up as "Uxsms". Im wondering ringtones what the service Uxsms does and if its possible to disable it.

Thanks in advance

Uxsms is the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service. You can stop and disable it from the Services console (Start > Run > Services.msc). Please note that you'll lose all the aero effects and eye candy in Win7 if you do that.

Are you using a fully patched OS? If not, try updating Windows.

You can also try switching the theme to Windows Basic, which will have a similar effect (all Aero effects will be turned off and less resources will be consumed). Sometimes Windows (7) does this automatically if your computer is running particularly slowly anyway.
