Just because it's 1.6GHz doesn't mean that's your CPU-hog problem. Need to know:

1. Make
2. Model
3. RAM installed
4. Other programs/peripherals installed on the machine (especially anything designed to run at startup).

We need to know how much RAM memory you have on it also. WE NEED MORE INFO AND MORE DETAILS ON WHAT YOU WANT.

You may need all the pieces to the puzzle before you can solve it.

Please turn off the capitals, the OP does not deserve to be shouted at. They apparently do not know any better and someone already asked for additional information. If you are here to help, please help with the correct spirit and wait to see what the answer to the request brings, even if it takes a few days. I am sure many of us have looked at this post and will check again later and try to help when enough information is available.

the cpu is 100% because some process is taking much of its processing time.
go to task manager and go to the processes tab and check which process is taking cpu and ram time do not end it post it here the name of the process.
u also need to scan for malware and viruses. using malwarebytes(google)

As listed in answer #4:
Run Malwarebytes to check for an infection your antivirus program may have missed.
Run task manager - processes tab and see what is running. Anything you clearly know does not need to be running shut down, anything you are not sure of, Google or ask us. You can use Microsoft Process Explorer (download from MS) to see more about the processes that are running instead of task manager.
Run msconfig (type in run box or type in search box and it will be at the top of the list) and go to the Start tab. Uncheck everything except Microsoft and your antivirus program from the list (you can add back some later if needed), OK and restart the machine.
Additionally, if you have not been doing this periodically, do a disk clean up and defrag (will not help this, but will help speed up your system, your start up, your program starting, and will reduce errors and improve stability)
These should help you quite a bit. Also if you happen to be running Norton or McAfee antivirus, consider uninstalling and switching to Avast or MS Security Essentials (both free), they use less system resources so your machine will run better.
