CPU loading heavily

My CPU seems to be loading pretty heavily even when I am not doing anything really load intensive. Even to the point sometimes where my mouse becomes stodgy. I recently installed a new CPU. Is there a chance that it is not seated correctly? I did not seem to have this problem with my old CPU. It is an exact replacement. Anyone have any insights as to what might be causing this? I have Malwarebytes installed on the computer. Is this enough? Could some kind of malware be running in the background sucking up system resources? My CPU load goes as high as 50-60% even when idle.
Thanx
Jim
