Anytime that i try to watch relatively HQ-HD video, it lags, now it's spreading to normal youtube videos also. Then when a med.-heavy program starts loading it takes a few minutes to start it, and for both cases my CPU usage is near 100. It was fine about a month ago when i went on vacation, but when i go back it was like this. As i write this, only google chrome and task manager is open, CPU usage is as about 58% average.Any ideas on how to help fix this?

Re: 100% CPU usage
Try to monitor the CPU usage before opening CROME. If it is normal before opening it then there is some process under CROME which takes you CPU usage report to GOOGLE on this. and remove it through Add/Remove programmes under control panel.
Try to use Firefox instead of CROME.
If it happens again then there is some thing wrong with OS( most probabaly Spyware or trozen).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This motherboard has the integrated Intel GMA 950 GPU.
This graphics processor is very weak, it uses system memory instead of the normal separate graphics memory, and it uses the system CPU for graphics functions that are normally done by the Graphics Processing Unit chip.
This means that if the CPU has to do other tasks, the Video will suffer.
If there is a lack of free RAM, the video will not function because paging to the hard disk (Virtual Memory) is way too slow.
The first thing to check is CPU usage, and free RAM under normal conditions before you try HD video.
Are there enough free resources ?
You can watch it with the help of Opera browser. Adobe haven't released flash 10 for mobile yet. But You
CAN play videos on youtube. Go to the link, then click on something on
the upper right corner of the video, which is "open in new window" . You
will be able to watch the video.
As far as I know, the Archos
5/7 cannot play youtube HQ or youtube HD. Another way to say, it doesn't
show "HD" or "HQ" for you to click on.
Also you can watch the youtube videos on http://www.youtube.com/xl
If all websites load slowly - check your internet connection speed at speedtest.net - for normal youtube video watching >2Mbps download speed is sufficient. The solution is changing the video quality on the youtube screen to least possible 360p or even 240p to run smoothly on 1Mbps.
If only youtube site opens slowly, while other sites open quickly - your internet provider might be cheating in order to save usage of bandwidth (video sites take 50-90% of the total internet bandwidth). Make a complaint to your internet provider, supervising authorities, or even change for another - better internet provider
If you click a HD video on YouTube, just push the pause button. This will allow the video to download before you watch it. HD videos require more time to download from the YouTube server, which is why you can usually watch normal videos without pausing to wait for it to download.
Hope this helps!!

You have plenty of CPU power. It will max out because the cpu is constantly processing the information to continue streaming the information to your screen, that is very normal. I would suggest some more RAM, at least 1 gig and only get a different video card if your into heavy game play with the newer online games out there.
I'm suggesting the extra RAM because it is a good way to make sure the more of the information is streaming at one time so there is less of a chance for interruption during streaming. Hope this helps.
I'd say it has NOTHING to do with how or when you access Yahoo. In fact, anytime you see an extreme jump in CPU usage like yours....you have to consider that you may very well have a TROJAN VIRUS that's hogging up all your memory (among other things viruses do). If you don't have a good anti-virus program, then get one fast. Update all virus definitions, then.......RUN a FULL scan on your pc or laptop! Watch what you find.
