    Probably Flash. Flash eats up a ton of CPU.

    Check that you Flash is up to date.

    Task Manager screenshot might have been more helpful.

    Also, Alt + Print Screen captures just the window you want, rather than everything.

    Late reply, but yes you can clearly see that the plugin container is using 53 CPU, which contains flash.
