Default CPU spikes


i have recently been getting cpu spikes.

i play and online fps game called counter strike source.. i bought a laptop which could handle it, i have been getting 100fps up untill i get these cpu spikes... just randomly i get a huge cpu spike which makes my fps go down to about 10... if i want a couple of minutes then minimise and then maximise it sorts the problem for about 5 minutes... i have no idea whats wrong with it because i have changed anything on my laptop.. there is about 30Gb free on the hard drive and i just installed new graphics card drivers but its still happening,,

Do you have any ideas or suggestions to help me out?

Thanks in advance,
